The Ballad of Rosamunde, a novella
Since Rosamunde was an important character to me in the first two books, I appreciate Ms. Delacroix writing this novella to tie up the ends so to speak. It did make me feel better to find out what happened to her. I don't like to give away the story, but you must remember this is a novella... short, sweet and quick to the point. A very creative ending I thought and loved how it was written/narrated with much in ballad form. I will say that if one has little imagination, actually hearing the ballads in the audio version was interesting, and done well. The narrator, as always did an excellent job, and the Ms. Delacroix provided us with a most creative ending, but remember it’s not a full length novel.
