A nice hobbit sized miniature

This short story takes the reader right into the heart of the Shire, where Gandalf the Grey shows up on Bilbo's doorstep, trying persuade the reluctant hobbit to follow him on an adventure. All who have read Tolkien's work know what eventually ensues, but this little story shows us the crucial scene from Gandalf's POV, which I find quite amusing and well captured. The grumpy and wise wizard ist obviously quite fond of Master Baggins and since he is very knowledgable, he of course pretends to know what's best for the middle-aged hobbit. A lovely read, which incorporates nicely some phrases from Tolkien and offers still a new and fresh view. Well done, mellon-nín!

Absolutely addictive!

If you are looking for a perfect mixture of adventure, romance, sweet and exciting moments, then look no more, because this is it! Kingsfoil is definitely my favourite Thranduil tale, because it packs all I love about the commanding Elvenking in one nice story.
The characters are wonderfully portrayed, the plot is well thought through by a writer who definitely knows her Tolkien lore, and the romance, yes, now comes the best part, is just so beautifully developed. One cannot resist the temptation to read one more chapter, and then another one. Well, at least I cannot.
So go ahead and do yourself a favour and delve into the wonderful world of Kingsfoil!

Nice, dark and twisted!

This short story is fantastically creepy and pulled me in the moment I soaked up the first words! The haunting atmosphere is perfectly described and I love the way the author drops hints about the past, the parents and the protagonists possible infatuation with her dashing brother. Love it! And I would love to read more!!!

Beautiful and lovely!

I really liked this take on Howl and Sophie, very lovely, with a pinch of hot desires and vivid originality. The characters are very well captured, staying true to the way we find them in the book, and Howl is really swoon-worthy, oh my! Who wouldn't want to be seduced by him?
The writing flows along nicely with a well structured prose and everything leads to an ending that's both cute and satisfying. Also the length of it makes it ideal for a comfortable and entertaining read.
A definite recommendation for everyone who loves Howl's Moving Castle!
