East

East by Edith Pattou



Summery:Born to roam, that is Rose.Always exploring.When her family falls to misfortune and they are offered a way out she accepts.She has seen the giant White Bear before.And in order to help her family she is going to live with him.His last hope.To save him from a terrible fate and enchantment.But can she?

Romance:Thinking a lot about someone, starting to like someone,starting to fall in love.
Bad Romance:To break the enchantment she had to sleep with him for a certain amount of nights.This book portrayed it very well, it was classified as bad and they were"two arm-lengths form each other".It was better in that way than other retellings.

Language:None.

Violence:Sometimes the White Bear would be more like a bear acting hungry.Troll palace destroyed and one troll got blown up before that.And the strolls got buried in the snow and all.Several dangerous situations.


Other:Some drinking, magic and superstitions.

Time Period:Medieval.

What I Thought:It was a good retelling, but I liked Jessica Day George's better.It was definitely well written and that was great.I just don't like some of the things about it.And it seemed a bit long, dragging out.But great plot and lot's of action.

Rating & Age:4 stars.13 up.
