They wear animal skins and have tusks and claws, and seem to have some amount of control over goblins. The bear that comes to get her is very nice. Turns out it's the prince himself, as he's cursed to be a bear by day Bestiality Is Depraved: The troll princess is actually looking forward to marrying and mating with a bear. It's also implied in the "Where Are They Now? Camille doesn't believe that the tiny Jotun can actually be giant and intimidating. So they trak across the mountains with him in tiny mode. But after he leaves her at the town he grows to his normal height.
If she had listened, they could have crossed the mountains much faster, as he said. Camille makes the single mistake of trying to see her lover's face, and has to spend the next year and a day searching for him.

Alain has one in his garden. Two members the staff are deathly afraid of it. Camille must answer riddles to receive help from the Fates. Alain's parents had been turned into the stone statues in the middle of the hedge maze "Where Are They Now?
We travel through the land of Faery with Camille, meeting bards and sorceresses and dragons along the way, as Camille encounters danger after danger in her quest for someone who has heard of the place east of the sun and west of the moon. On and on she travels, and over and over she meets people who can give her no answer. Here the story becomes almost tedious--chapter after chapter of characters who aren't much help--but the effect is that we feel the endlessness of the journey right along with Camille.
We are heartstricken with her every time someone says "I've never heard of it; go ask so-and-so.
By the climax of the novel, I had no idea how McKiernan was going to get Camille out of her predicament. This is a testament to the author's skill, that I was so tense, as a reader, wondering how the heroine would ever succeed in her quest.
Camille perseveres, and proves the strength of her love for Alain. In the end, this is both an adventure and a romance, full of monsters and riddles and sensuality. Is it really true that there is to be a sequel? May have just been me but I just couldn't get interested in it. Everything about this book is amazing. It kept me company during my time overseas in the military. It was so good I read it over and over till the heat stated eating away at the glue.
I was in the desert, it was that hot. But coming back here I purchased the book anyway but now that they have it on the kindle I don't have to worry about it breaking or loosing it again cause it's in the cloud. If you are into fairy tales, brave heroines, true love, and happy endings; I would imagine this will soon be your favorite book, too! I am not going to pretend that this isn't cheesy archetype after corny plot twist, but somehow it is written so very well that you can embrace this story for what it is - a good, old fashioned, epic romance.
A fantastical adventure story through a magical world, with lots of captivating moments, even if most of the story is predictable there are still a few surprise twists in the story, which made a perfect entertaining story. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase.
This book is okay but not one that I will want to read again. It just didn't catch enough of my interest. Easier to follow than some of his books but very well written. Always a complex and colorful story. Hard to put it down until you finish it. See all 40 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.
