Customer Review: Seven Wild Sisters


Seven Wild Sisters

Charles de Lint

Illustrated by Charles Vess

Little, Brown for Young Readers


Available February 4, 2014

I really enjoyed this book. The genre was fantasy. This book was about many different things, and holds something for everyone. There is rescuing the main characters sisters, not getting killed, and even a little bit of romance. The author ties all of these plots together to make a really interesting story. The suspense level was also pretty high, although the book was a little slow at first. Something the author could have done to make this book better would be to connect you to the characters a little bit better. In the beginning of the book he includes a little bit about each sister, but he tells you their personalities, and does not really show them. This makes you connect a little less with the sisters. There are seven sisters, but the main character is the sister named Sarah Jane. She helps out an old woman who later becomes her friend – Aunt Lillian. Aunt Lillian tells Sarah Jane tales of fairyland, and the many feuds this place holds. She warns Sarah Jane not to get involved in them. But when Sarah Jane rescues a ‘sangman, Aunt Lillian and Sarah Jane, along with the help of some special creatures must return him to fairyland. Soon, Sarah Jane’s six other sisters have all been captured. Sarah Jane must work quickly to save them. Will she be able to do so? And could her red hair be useful? Read this book to find out!

4 1/2 out of 5 stars
