Time and Blood by Sherry Rentschler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fantasies including mythical creatures like dragons and fairies are a dime a dozen. Fantasies written well enough to virtually allow the reader to forget that these creatures aren't actually real are most definitely not common. Time and Blood is a relatively short novel, though not short on details somehow. The characters demand to be cared for and the dialogue directs each scene without the dreaded "telling" aftertaste we all know and despise. With a plot full of action and heart, this book pulls you along through the story smoothly and easily.
Time and Blood is my first literary encounter with Sherry Rentschler. Reading up on her you will find that she is a poet as well as an author of several different genres of fiction. Thinking back on it now, I can appreciate that she brought a little of everything together here and perhaps that's why it was so good. I hope to be able to read more of her works soon.
