Playing with various fairy tale and Greek mythos this story begins with the classic trope of evil sorcerer father killing the suitors for his daughter's hand. But our young heroine doesn't remain passive for long. We are, instead, taken on a courageous journey with a powerful female protagonist. Soulstring pulled on my heart strings with its sweet hidden love story and an utterly charming conclusion.
Soulstring is a fantasy novel about Magda de'Stain, a daughter of a sorceror and heir to his power, and her attempt to escape from her father and start a new life in the land of Thall.What is pleasant about the book is that this is pretty much the plot of the story.

After reading Midori Snyder's short story, Tattercoats, I couldn't wait to read more of her work. In brief, a princess with immense (but uncontrollable) magical abilities is being held out as a prize to lure men to their death as they try to win her hand. A simple farmer finally passes all three of her evil father' [...]
An enjoyable, quick read. A tomboyish princess falls in love with a foreign suitor. Unfortunately for him, her father is a demented wizard who kills those seeking his daughter's hand.
