Read full description of the books Winter Rose:3 stars solely for the quality of McKillip's writing - evocative, lyrical, full of beautiful imagery. Sort of a combination of Marillier's style, which is vivid, always filled with otherworldly and draws inspiration from folklore, and McKinley's - which is heavy on psychedelic "trips" her heroines have to go through to evolve and grow.
Winter Rose is an interesting enough Tam Lin re-imagining, too bad so much of the story is dedicated to the main character's running in the woods or in snow or having hallucinations. Plus I never felt any connection with the characters - they are so distant and dull, they lack passion.
Don't think McKillip is my cup of tea.
Read information about the authorPatricia Anne McKillip is an American author of fantasy and science fiction novels, distinguished by lyrical, delicate prose and careful attention to detail and characterization. She is a past winner of the World Fantasy Award and Locus Award, and she lives in Oregon. Most of her recent novels have cover paintings by Kinuko Y. Craft. She is married to David Lunde, a poet.
According to Fantasy Book Review, Patricia McKillip grew up in Oregon, England, and Germany, and received a Bachelor of Arts (English) in 1971 and a Master of Arts in 1973 from San Jose State University.
McKillip's stories usually take place in a setting similar to the Middle Ages. There are forests, castles, and lords or kings, minstrels, tinkers and wizards. Her writing usually puts her characters in situations involving mysterious powers that they don't understand. Many of her characters aren't even sure of their own ancestry. Music often plays an important role. Love between family members is also important in McKillip's writing, although members of her families often disagree.
