January 4, 2013 - Book Review - Once Upon A Twilight by Winter Pennington

Once Upon A Twilight by Winter Pennington
Publisher: Bold Strokes Books
Genre: Fantasy/Fairytale
Book Description from Boldstrokes Website
"Millicent and Malinda Hearthwell couldn’t be more different. Though the two sisters have always been close, Millicent is often frustrated by her sister’s inability to be what she perceives as mature and realistic. Too often, Malinda surrenders to her impulses, throwing herself thoughtlessly and headlong into flights of reckless fantasy.

On the day before Malinda’s wedding, Millicent finds herself dragged yet again on another of her sister’s wild and imaginative quests. Convinced that she will beseech the Fey Ones to help her escape the dull world around her and her betrothed, Malinda persuades Millicent into riding out in the forest near their home. When things do not go as planned, Millicent realizes she’s lost not only her sister in the deep heart of the forest, but her own way as well.

Just when she thinks she can go on no longer, a strange woman from the forest offers Millicent shelter from the storm. As Millicent comes to better know the generous and beautiful stranger, she begins to wonder if perhaps her sister’s far-fetched beliefs might have some merit to them after all, and that maybe, just maybe, fairytales and romance actually do exist beyond a page."
4.5 out of 5 stars
I’m tired of bitching about Winter Pennington.  I just read “Once Upon A Twilight” because it’s the only damn story of hers that I haven’t read (that I am aware of) and once again I am left wanting more.  I realize that I am becoming one of those stalker types repeatedly checking the Bold Strokes and Amazon websites to see if I missed something of hers, wishing she would write faster.  Maybe I should read slower.  It’s a tossup.

All I can say is that thus far I have not been disappointed with anything of hers that I have read.  Sure that day might come because I seem to be placing Winter Pennington on a writers pedestal but I just enjoy the way they flow and the fact that they are fantasy/paranormal but still feel real to me.  They are a wonderful escape from daily life.  I like them.

  1. Thank you for the review. If her books leave you wanting more, I will definitely check her out. Sometimes I can't get the exact book for my KOBO, but I have tried others by the same authors.
