4 out of 5 stars
The Timekeeper’s Daughter was my first Christina Benjamin book and I have to say I am impressed! Novellas are a tricky thing, in my opinion, they have a limited amount of time to grab your attention, introduce the world, and endear you to the characters and/or their plight. I think The Timekeeper’s Daughter was able to do all of this, and do it well!
You couldn’t help but feel for Arah and Calen, they had this star crossed lovers thing going on. A Fairy and a Timekeeper, forbidden to be together by their people, so they run away and never really stop running, even years later with two children in tow. You wanted them to go the distance, because you wanted true love to persevere and conquer the day. I also loved the old school fairytale feel this story had, with deals being made, things going awry, and heavy consequences for even the best of intentions. If this is what Christina Benjamin can pull off with a novella, I’m really looking forward to what she can do with a full length novel!
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
