Summary: “Bringing you a selection of emotional, often dark, rhyming verse – seventeen poems have been chosen from the many this fantasy-loving author has written over the years, to deliver a pocket-sized introduction to her imagination.
From the heartfelt honesty of ‘A Prayer for My Children’, to the meandering tale of a lost king in ‘The Soul Bearer’, this is a little parcel of rhyme that offers a light, yet thought provoking treat or two.” – Goodreads
This is a charming, brief collection of poems. They vary from short to long, and uplifting to creepy. My personal favorites were A Writer’s Tale, Swallows, The Torturer, and Tread Lightly on the Echoes.
Sometimes the poems were a tad confusing or the language a bit simple, and occasionally the flow of the rhythm would be disrupted as well. However, it wasn’t a big enough issue to take away from my enjoyment of it.
The Soul Bearer is a solid, enjoyable piece of work. A 4 out of 5!
