Goodreads Synopsis.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

A dark, whimsical tale about why you should never let someone tame you if you’re a wild thing. A story of love, betrayal and vengeance.

Our unnamed protagonist is one of the traveling folk. Called such as they can travel within anything in nature. She has survived the wilds by herself her whole life, until one day when a handsome boy comes along and steals her heart. As boys do, he proceeds to break it. Not only that, but he has done the worst thing, he has named her. Being named takes away her abilities to travel, to be free. The only way to become unnamed again, is for your name to be forgotten. Oh, and sprinkle that with a little vengeance on the bastard that betrayed you.

I really enjoyed the writing style and the artwork was great too. It was an easy read and I recommend giving it a try. I’m not sure if I would run off and attempt some of the author’s other works or not but this one is worth the time.
