Book Review
If you’re a fan of Shakespeare with some Empire Strikes Back leanings, this book is a fun read. Any book that begins with, “If flurries be the food of quests, snow on,” gets my full attention. Not only is the book a wonderful retelling of The Empire Strikes Back, but it’s a fun exercise to try to place the Shakespearean allusions from Romeo and Juliet to King Lear and all works in between.
