Children of Hamelin by Dawn Sinclair

 

“Magical, bawdy, and mysterious amid young romance.”

I’m pretty sure the Pied Piper should have featured on the Cold Case TV series. Thanks to Ms. Sinclair, we no longer have to wonder what happened to the children of Hamelin.

This book is a treat, written in the archaic prose one would expect of the time, and even the harsher realities are lyrically presented (as it should be in all good fantasy tales).

A laugh-out-loud, funny, enthralling read, beautifully written, in which the main characters present their different perspectives of events. This richly embroidered tale beats some of the traditionally published stuff around into a cocked hat.
