As Princess Lissar reaches womanhood, it is clear to all the kingdom that in her breathtaking beauty she is the mirror image of her mother, the queen. But this seeming blessing forces her to flee for safety from her father’s lust and madness. With her loyal dog Ash at her side, Lissar will unlock a door to a world of magic, where she will find the key to her survival-and an adventure beyond her wildest dreams.
I loved Deerskin! It started out a bit slow but then it sucked me right in. It’s a horrifying story but told beautifully. If you didn’t like Sunshine you probably wouldn’t like this one either. They are very different stories but this one is very wordy too. I’m looking forward to reading more books by Robin McKinley. 5 Stars
