There's a lot of things in fiction books and movies that I wish were real Fairies, Demigods, Dragons the list goes on. But what about Food?

My first impression of this novel was the beautiful cover! It is an absolutely stunning book, and it gets even better under the dust jacket showcasing a gold gilded, traditionally bound book. The plot was well executed and I found the jumps in time and point of view changes refreshing without being confusing. The story itself was not what I expected from the blurb.
