I finished reading "The Gracekeepers" by Kirsty Logan, but I have to tell you, this story is never really finished for me. I enjoyed it so much, the story just wrapped itself around my heart. It is one of those stories that just lives inside you, evoking emotions and making it hard to put down.
The story is captivating and inspired in part by Scottish myths and fairy tales, but it could also be about our world. In Gracekeepers, there are two worlds, two peoples, those who live on land, and those who live on the oceans, with hints of those who may live in the oceans. Callendish lives on a small island, alone, overseeing funerals, when she meets North who works on a circus boat. And once their lives meet, their worlds change. You feel that their paths were destined to cross from even before their birth. I don't want to spill the beans, but I do highly highly recommend this book for all those who love fantasy.
I so enjoyed this book, I know I will be reading it again. And again.
I give this book 5+++ stars.
