This is a creepy and evocative fantasy likely to make readers wary of shadows in the corner of an eye, and a love story, with unconventional characters and an unusual sense of place. Its central conceit, that the clothes we wear are infused with our feelings, is well done, especially how diverse materials communicate differently. Chiffon, for instance, reveals our daydreams.
Here’s a snowy supernatural thriller with roots deep in Nordic myth... The Nordic night descends, while a pair of ravens caw incessantly. (Could they be Huginn and Muninn, companions of the one-eyed god Odin?) The supernatural elements are handled superbly, particularly the fearsome, clawed draugr howling outside. The romance element is a bit sickly, but maybe teenage goths will lap it up.
