    One thought on “Innocent Hearts

    1. Anthea Carson on said:

      Half-elf Bronwen sets out on an adventure, equipped with her back pack filled with supplies. She travels through a vivid, colorful, charming world filled with magical little moments. She meets a caring elf who is surprised at her lack of skills and knowledge. He helps her and tries to protect her.I enjoyed this story because I cared about what happened to Bronwen and her adoptive "older brother." Her innocence and naiveté made me and feel protective of her. My only complaint was that it was a s [...]

      *I received this e-book through We <3 YA Books ARR*So this world that the author created in this book is amazing and spectacular and very detailed. The first section is a short story about Bronwen, a half elf, and her 'adoptive' brother Arden. I loved the dynamic between the two characters especially the run in with the Nepharil. In the end, I really wish this story was a little longer because the end just seemed to cut off.The second section was about the flip side, the Nepharil. We get to m [...]

      "Innocent Hearts" by Jess Mountifield contains two short stories.The first is a lovely little fantasy story about Bronwen, a half elf, who leaves her home to join an elf city in the North.Mountifield does a great job at describing Bronwen's journey, which is very hard for her until she meets a fellow Elf Arden. She also introduces two Nepharil, who then feature in the second story about Liza, a young Nepharil girl trying to learn to fly.Appropriately titled Innocent Hearts the book is a homage t [...]

      A duology of two longish short stories, both set in the same fantasy world of elves, humans and winged humans. Well-written and imaginative, they read less like stories and more like introductory chapters to a larger work. Two characters are common to both stories, and this enables the reader to see them both as warriors and as more balanced domestic figures (well, one of them's pretty nasty even at home, but still). Here's hoping Jess Mountifield expands this world in a full-length novel some t [...]

      This book was very well written. I only wish these were longer stories. I would love to see how each girl turns out. Even though they were short stories i found my self caring about the characters, and that's great since usually it takes a while for me to get involved with the characters. I really hope the author will consider continuing these characters stories. I will definitely recommend this book to others. Thanks to the Author for allowing be to be one of the few who received a copy on Ya B [...]

      Jess has produced two short stories in which her main characters are my favourite creatures -- elves and flying "humans." All dwelling in the Scottish territory.The first story, The Path Home, has a struggling pace and beautiful descriptions, though I was left a bit in the air with the ending.The second story, much shorter, though quite compelling -- Learning to Fly -- seemed to be a sequel to The Path Home. It was not, but there was enough previous information to reinforce the existence of the [...]

      As two short stories I can give this a full five stars, but I wanted to know more about both the main characters of the stories. I love the world that the author created in such a short piece of work. Would love to read more from the author, and especially about the two young girls written about in the short stories. Very enjoyable fantasy pieces and would love them to be continued!

    8. Kirsty Vizard on said:

      I was disappointed with the two stories contained in 'Innocent Hearts'; not with their content, however, but with the fact that they both seemed incomplete, even for short stories.In 'The Path Home' we are introduced to Bronwen, amidst her grief, as she searches through her mother's belongings. Bronwen is half-elf and faces the perilous journey to the Eleven city alone. Initially I felt pity for her - but this was her only redeeming quality - she appears to be a feeble and selfish character. How [...]

      Originally posted at Butterfly-o-Meter Books on Mar 7 2012:It was fun reading these two short stories. I am still in a phunk about reading adventure/fantasy though, so I didn’t get really excited, honestly.The first story was less engaging for me then the second. I’ll be really honest about it, when I was done reading the first I had this sort of odd unfinished feeling, like maybe I’d missed a little clue or something. I don’t know how to put it, it felt like the “Bam!” wasn’t in t [...]

      This story was short and sweet. And when I say short I mean really, really short. I received this as an ARC copy so it was free, but I would have been a tad annoyed if I had paid for this book to fins out its only 41 pages. There are two different stories which are intertwined with each other, which does make it seem even shorter. If this was made into a full blown novel I could definitely see myself wanting to read it. There is some real potential with these stories although in this short book [...]

      I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.This was a great story although a very short one.I would love to read more of this story as I LOVED what I read.I want to know how Bronwen fares at the fort and to find out more about the mystery of her deceased Mum and how that impacts on Bronwens life.I would also like to see how Liza's family react to her when they find out that she can finally fly and no longer deserves the nick name of "dirt sniffer".I can't wait to find out [...]

      My opinion on this book is complicatedAs a part of a lengthier story, I like the concepts and the characters in both; however, as completed short stories they are incomplete.If the author is putting out the starts of stories that she plans to weave together into a novel and these are those starts, I really like what she has so farEach story is set up well and these characterizations make me want to learn even more about the characters involved. She has created some mystery and some desire to inv [...]

      I enjoyed this book and would have liked to have read more! The first few pages were a bit hard to get into to, but once the characters stared rounding out, I was finished before I knew it, and left wanting to story to continue I thought the idea was original and would have loved to see what happened next to Bronwen.
