Give Me goes back and forth from Lilith’s point of view to Elyse’s; from the past and the beginning of Elyse’s torment to the current life which Lilith lives that is being spun, much of it, unknowingly for her. With sweet romance, revenge, sibling rivalry and of course, betrayal, this book is everything you need for a wonderful story.
My absolute favorite part of this book was Elyse. Her character goes through so much, it’s understanding to see where she starts and ends up. I found myself sympathizing because it didn’t feel like she had a choice, the classic, “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” approach. (And I promise, I’m not giving anything away!) Another favorite of mine was the settings. Taking place in Europe, the scenery Rigel describes makes you want to stop what you’re doing and get on a plane to see the sites she so delicately describes.
While I truly wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading Give Me, LK Rigel has managed to create a faerie tale with great depth and with ancient undertones. This is a book that I would recommend to anyone lost in the world of Once Upon A Time.
I chose 4 and not 5 because as much as I loved this book, there were some moments when I felt confused and had to take a minute to remind myself what exactly was going on and who everyone was. But I loved how everyone past and present was connected; everything began and came back around in one huge circle. This is a story that I could see in a children’s storybook as well, one that we tell such as Beauty and the Beast or Snow White to our own children that they grow up on and learn from.
