for 'Nici's Christmas Tale'
What a wonderful review for ‘Nici’s Christmas Tale’ from Brian Wilkerson writer and blogger Trickster Eric. There are spoilers in the whole review, after the spoiler warning. Here are some highlights! Brian has been a Troubadours fan right from the start, which makes his enthusiasm – and huge compliments!! – all the more important to me.
‘Even Nici has his own happy circumstances; finding a mate and raising up a litter of puppies. One could say he is the Lord of the Pasture because he protects the sheep with assistance of his mate and two of his older offspring. After reading this story, I have decided that he is basically Dragonetz in dog-form. Both of them are noble knights haunted by past failures and whose reputations have been soured by past masters who find redemption through a bond with Estela, which starts, incidentally, through her music.’
‘What I like most about this story is the sequel/prequel set up. This way we can read a story of conflict, endurance, triumph, fateful decisions etc. but also enjoy the peaceful present.’
