" I totally respect the fact that this is a story of a girl so traumatized by horrific violence that she is granted a magic world to raise her daughters, free of the scariness that would make life unbearable (hehe...unBEARable) for her. The concept is beautiful. Through this magical world, Liga was able to find strength within the safety of her surroundings, as she raised her daughters. Eventually Liga and her daughters become part of the real world with the resilience and strength to confront life. That said, I have to admit that this book was so challenging for me to complete that I eventually bought the audiobook in order to finish it. I think this is largely because I am not a fan of fantasy fiction written in this type of language, kind of a dialect I associate with people who role play at RenFests. The voices of each character are very distinct, and this aspect of the writing encouraged my interest. The content interested me but, I found myself constantly putting the book down, which really doesn't give it justice. My only theory for why this was an issue is that I am not a fan of this genre. Therefore the content and distinct voices did not carry my enthusiasm throughout the book. I would recommend Tender Morsels to high functioning readers, age 15 and up, who have enthusiasm toward fairy tales and fantasy fiction. "
