From A High Tower

6 Nov

“From a High Tower” is the tenth Elemental Masters book by Mercedes Lackey.

This book is an interesting take on the tale of Rapunzel.

Giselle is an Air Elemental Master was magical growing hair… she’s also a sharp shooter, and after her adoptive mother dies, she joins a Wild West show traveling around Germany.  This is the key for a number of interesting adventures, especially when Rosa from “Blood Red” enters the story line.

Wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy this one as much as the others I’ve read, but it turned out to be just as entertaining and fun.

If you like light fantasy, you could do a lot worse than read the Elemental Masters series.  There’s a smidgen of romance in most books, but not enough to qualify as fantasy romance.  The women in this series tend to be extremely strong.  Men complement them; they don’t complete them.

“From a High Tower” is extremely readable and enjoyable.  Highly recommended.
