Strange Grace Reviews
This is such a weird and beautiful book. Friends, I am struggling to find the words to articulate how much I adored this book. While the premise of a hundreds-year old pacts that provide prosperity to a town in return for sacrifice isn't new, I found Strange Grace to be refreshing and captivatingly written and is one of the best witch stories I've ever read.
Three Graces is an idyllic town: there is no disease, the weather is perfect, injuries heal overnight, and crops grow in abundance. Provide ...more
Strange Grace is a high fantasy novel featuring a polyamorous relationship, terrible bargains, and the creepiest forest since Uprooted.
Which means, of course, that it was exactly my thing. I read it in less than a day - thanks to rivetedlit I could read it legally for free and not for the 11€ this ebook costs, but only for one day - and it's been a while since I did that without skimming. I loved this book so much, for many reasons.
One of them is, of course, the polyamory representation. This is ...more

This was a great start to my spooky month. Because, sorry everyone, September is officially October Eve for me. While I did enjoy this, I had some pros and cons while reading it, which I’m going to make as succinct as possible for y’all.

In the village of Three Graces, no one is sick. The village is perfect: crops never die, no one dies unnaturally, people heal from horrific injuries in just days. This is all achieved by a deal with the Devil of the forest made hundreds of years ago. In order to maintain that bargain, the village must send their best boy into the forest every seven years during ...more

“The old god and the youngest Grace witch. The story says they loved each other, but can the story be trusted at all?”
🌟 I didn’t like and didn’t hate this book but I think it could have been better for sure.
I read this because I like the synopsis very much! I thought that I have read something similar before -And it obviously isn’t new but still good- and I found out that it has the same synops ...more

“I fell in love with the forest. And the forest loved me back. And so we traded hearts. Mine is here, larger and stronger than it could have been in the small cavern of my body”
I’ve read over one-hundred books so far in 2018, and Strange Grace is easily my absolute favorite. And I anticipate that it will be my favorite book of 2018 come December 31st, too. What a masterpiece in every sense of the word. Literally per ...more

The old god and the youngest Grace witch. The story says they loved each other, but can the story be trusted at all?
Oh, this book is such a mess to me, trying to understand what the hell is happening and what are the rules to the magic the book revolves around felt like trying to find your way back home in the dark completely blindfolded. I really don’t know what was taking place hal ...more
This sounds like all types of yummy.
