One For Sorrow, Two For Joy (book review)
One For Sorrow, Two For Joy is a fantasy story by Clive Woodall. In the story, a brave robin named Kirrick is standing up against the evil magpies. He is trying to find a way to destroy their rule in the bird kingdom. He is not without allies--his mate Portia, who is also a robin, Darreal the red kite, Tomar and Isidris the snowy owls, Kraken the gull, and Storne the golden eagle are all on his side. And little do the birds know it, but the creature they fear and hate most--Man, is going to pay a vital part in destroying the magpies' rule.
This book was very good, but GORY! Apparently the magpies like inflicting pain...seriously, you don't want hear more. The book would be perfect if not for the gore! Yuck!
I give this book 7 out of 10 stars.
