is actually one of the series of fiction quartet that rockinfaerie intends to write (also written are Green
. This author's biggest strength is convincing characterisation. The chapters are sort of character studies, reflecting on the most important, turning events of the character's life. And that usually is very hard, because it means you must understand them really well, but the author takes this challenge, and I surely was left in awe of the work.
When you read this story there are numerous references to everyday, real life experiences that we have. It just feels nice when you can relate with something said in a story. It makes it personal. And personal is good, because it shows the writer's true ability in writing about real, human feelings, human emotions.
rockinfaerie is a descriptive writer. There are paragraphs after paragraphs of descriptions: scenary, feelings, and a lot of the plot just progresses in that manner. So Blue
is certainly a must read for those who like descriptive narrative.
One more thing I noticed in the works of this author is the choice of scene that are written/included. An author mustn't always have to write pages and pages of story to make a point. The reason Blue
and other fictions by rockinfaerie keep me engaged is because the scene in which the character is written makes a very important statement about the character. And that when explored in detail is what keeps the reader hooked.
is about two relatively major character in the series Petunia and Remus, and nothing very persuasive, powerful comes to my mind when I think of them, but it's done incredibly in this story, thus changing the average mindset that there may still be so much potential in a character you first think you don't know much about.
