Elske : die Vertraute der Königin - Cynthia Voigt Like my Voigt favorite "On Fortune's Wheel", "Elske" has tuned out to be a completely engrossing fantasy story, set in the same cruel and barbaric world, but anchored some generations later. I liked "On Fortune's Wheel" a little better, maybe because there was a little more romance sprinkled in - although both books clearly do not aim at being called a love-story.

While I was inhaling "Elske" I was continuously eager to turn the next page and very reluctant to close the book in order to do unnescessary things like working, eating, showerig and buying groceries. "Else" is not one of those books I promise myself to reread, but it s one of those books that make me confirm: Reading is still my favorite pasttime.
