By treasuring the word of God in our hearts. Oh how many people mess up their lives by not meditating on and loving and memorizing the word of God! Do you want to be holy, that is, do you want power to overcome sin and live a life of radical godliness and sacrificial love and utter devotion to the cause of Christ? Then get on the track.
I don't know about you, but I was instantly intrigued by that twist alone. But it gets even better! This little tale draws from Irish mythology, including Seelie and Unseelie courts, the sidh, and a lot more that would be too spoilery to mention.
Here's another thing you should know: I read Fairest Son in one sitting. The plan was to read three or four chapters and then move on to writing a blog post.
But I kept scrolling. Fairest Son is a gender-bent retelling of Snow White. I stopped once for a cookie break. Unexpected twists No spoilers here, but this story deftly twists and weaves the Snow White we all know into a fresh new tale--a tale that stands strongly on its own, yet sends little winks and nods to its source materials at all the right moments.
Every "aha" was a delight! Wild fey Disney's Tinkerbell is nice and all, but the kind of fairies that really enchant me are those that tend toward the wilder side.
A little darker, a little more capricious and untamed, a little truer to the fairy tales of old. The Seelie and Unseelie courts here were populated by just that sort of fairy a.
Perfect pacing Novellas are tricky when it comes to pacing. Longer than short stories, they must have a strong enough plot to merit about 20, words; but shorter than novels, they don't have the space to delve into the characters or the world quite as deeply as a page tome.
Yet Williams crafted a story that sucked me in quickly, settled me into the world comfortably, and made me fall in love with the characters in very short order.
I didn't feel that anything was lacking or terribly rushed. But now the problem is I want more! Lovable characters Like I said, I fell in love. He is a gentle soul, yet strong. Deeply hurt and disfigured, yet trusting. His mirthful disposition was a ray of sunlight in a snowy landscape.

Calling him a "precious bean" or "soft cinnamon roll," as is the practice of many fangirls when talking about this type of character, just isn't good enough for dear Idris! Our main character, the reserved and secretive huntress Keeva, formed the perfect complement to him.
Capable and cunning, she held her own without being an emotionless "strong heroine. The band of seven goblins, cleverly named by personality, were a lot of fun too! They paralleled Disney's dwarves somewhat and were surprisingly easy to keep track of--which is no small feat when there are seven of them running around.
Pretty prose I'm a sucker for lovely narrative. It's no substitute for a good story, of course, but it's the delicious icing on the cake.
And Williams achieved a style of prose that harkens back to the time of fairy tales, with an omniscient style and a whimsical voice that reminded me at times of Anne Elisabeth Stengl.
I can't tell you how or why or what happened without giving away the ending, but Fairest Son had me grinning, widening my eyes, clutching my heart, and then at last smiling softly with satisfaction, all because of its beautiful themes. Though unexpected, they arose naturally from the story and put a twist on love and redemption that I didn't see coming.
A few typos Just a small handful, really, and perhaps a phrase or two that could have been smoothed out. Very, very minor details. I loved the story too much to care. It wasn't long enough!
