ARC Review: Honeycomb by Joanne M. Harris

Honeycomb

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This is a gorgeous collection of seemingly unrelated original fairy tales that gradually twist around one another to eventually reveal that they are much more connected than they at first seem. They celebrate stories, who tells them and how they are told, reminding me in some ways a lot of the Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. If you liked that book, I suspect you will like this one.

The magic and writing are lush and mysterious, the concept of the Silken Folk (fae) and the insect world being the same thing was fascinating and strange, just as a fairy tale should be. I loved the journey, watching the Lacewing King and those around him learn and grow and change through the power of stories.
