    One thought on “Hy Brasil”

    1. I picked this up in the bargain bin of a bookshop one evening when I felt forlorn with no book in my bag I d heard of the author but not this title, and so my expectations weren t that high Thus, I was completely taken by surprise at how quickly and totally absorbed I became I wanted to meet the characters I dreamed about life on Hy Brasil at night I chewed my lip and leaned forward when events began to accelerate and the pieces join up I caught my breath at the scenery, sniffed sulphur from the [...]

    2. Once I got past the my summer vacation in Qwghlm opening, I really liked Hy Brasil I want to go More precisely, I want to spend part of my childhood playing Ravnscar.

    3. The land of Hy Brasil seems so real, I was convinced it must exist Sidoney s explorations of this island are described with exquisite language and a touch of magic.

    4.

    5. Not really my kind of book, it s a strange mix of fantasy and slice of life novel and it s about somewhere I often describe my accent as coming from but it didn t excite me, I was happy to leave it in work and read it in snippets.

    6. The pace of this book is slow like the small town country it s set in in a good way, each little bit unfolding to reveal a new piece of the puzzle While I enjoyed it, I was entirely disappointed by the hanging end Or maybe my geography just isn t very good.
