Heart of Briar - Laura Anne Gilman Calling this story a retelling of Tam Lin doesn't do it justice. Gilman has taken the bones of the story and reassembled it entirely, restrung it with strength and ferocity and drive outside that pale relationship between a woman and her lost lover. Janny's journey starts to find Tyler, but ultimately she finds so much more. Another world, a war, and a strength and bravery she never realized existed. This story starts with Tam Lin but rockets forward into so much more.

Much like Jasper Fforde's Nursery Crime series, HEART OF BRIAR uses past fairy tales as a flavor more than a template. Jan's experiences share elments in common with the story of Tam Lin, but be prepared to see those old elements transmuted into something new. Gilman is once again exploring the collision of technology and magic, and I look forward to more stories in this world.

Full review to follow.
