A Quote:

"There sit the knights that were so great of hand,
The ladies that were queens of fair green land,
Grown grey and black now, brought unto the dust,
Soiled, without raiment, clad about with sand."
- Algernon Charles Swinburne.

Review: Peter Darling

Peter Darling Peter Darling by Austin Chant
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm not a fan of retellings, but this particular one is very well crafted and nicely done. Peter comes from a journey of self-discovery, of being saved by fantasy and doomed by it in the end. All the familiar themes are here, as danger, death, loss, grief, and growing. Brief and compelling. I only have issues with some deus-ex-machina happenings, too rushed in some parts, but they were needed for the book to be concise as it is.
