REVIEW: The Oddling Prince – Nancy Springer (ARC)

36365200Title: The Oddling Prince
Author: Nancy Springer
Rating: ★★★

ARC provided by the publisher through NetGalley.

I absolutely love book with medieval Irish (or in this case Scottish) settings and Celtic mythology so I was really looking forward to this. The Oddling Prince is a light read with a fascinating plot, but sadly there was just something missing for me to truly enjoy it.

The book’s strongest element is the fairytale-esque writing. The gorgeous descriptions and peaceful atmosphere draws the reader into the story. Coupled with the fact that the book is not that long, The Oddling Prince was an easy to get through. Another aspect that I liked was the relationship between Aric and Albaric: their newfound friendship was so pure and heartwarming. The ending, however, was…something. I didn’t necessarily dislike it, I’m just still not sure how I feel about it? The Oddling Prince is a whimsical, interesting story, but I think there were certain things missing that unfortunately didn’t allow me to enjoy it as much as I had hoped.
