Book Review: Cold Tom by Sally Prue

Blurb: Tom is both elfin and human, and running for his life. Cast out from the elfin Tribe, he must hide among the hated humans, whom the Tribe call "demons." Tom's Tribe-half seeks freedom and thrives on a connection with nature which lets him "call on the stars" and turn invisible when in danger. But Tom's human side is emerging, and he is confused and appalled by this change. For he fears the twining emotional bonds, which he sees literally as vines, that bind one human to another. But when he is helped by a kind "demon" girl, it is these strong bonds that save him-and draw him to his true home
I give it 3 stars

My Review: It's interesting to read a story from the point of view of someone not human and I think the author did a fine job of making Tom and his kind very different and strange. This is a rather odd book and though I did enjoy it, it was a little dull. It's also a fairly short read, or at least it was for me. Still, if you like YA fantasy and you're looking for something kind of different, you might want to give this one a try.
