Read full description of the books:
Really Elske you are just dull. Yes your earing is enchanting but you're just dull. Maybe in another time, another place. But not today. I'm sorry.
Elske is the story of a girl who grows up in a barbaric wolf man society. She officially belongs to the king and when he dies, she will be sent into his tomb and will be abused by wild men, then burned alive with the dead kings body. It's put in more tactfully in the book but that's basically the deal. Ya I know. Yuck. So her grandmother takes her place as she runs away and she makes a new life in a world where people looke at her differently for her honey skin, grey eyes, and over all good looks. It's a society where women fear men and are clearly unsuperior. But then this girl comes along, claming she's a queen and pregnant. Elske gets caught in her messeses and eventually must protect and return this girl to her kindom and her crown.
Loved the cover but the story lacked a lot. It was a simple tale but it was spread out to thin in a many paged, tightly printed book that took forever to get through. Some of the themes were not of my taste. The book was littlered with comments about rape and pregnancy. Abortion is considered and just an over all defiling of mother hood in my opinion, unitill the girl begins to want to see her child but Elske already swore not to tell her the wereabouts of the girl. It does go to a good home for you consilation.
Just a dull book. It didn't really arouse any feelings except guilt at reading a book about this stuff. Then there was all this other stuff. It was basically about the vulnrability of a strong girl and I don't really recomend it to any one just because you'll drown in tears of boredome and if people thought they should read it from this review, then I've caused several drownings that I don't want to be accountable for.
