    When I was a kid I spent a lot of time in the Sierra Nevada Mountains My dad found the less traveled parts in the shadows of the Sequoia, Kings Canyon and Yosemite National Parks Little places tucked away between the big places, with tall pines, cool and deep shadows, trails that could have led anywhere There was mystery in those deep woods, pine needles crunching underfoot, the canopy holding back the sky Glimpses of sunlight knifing in straight lines between shadows Imagination was king there, I was anyone I wanted to be, in any world I could conceive I felt a magic in those places I haven t felt since I m old now, with a lot of concrete real life between me and those magical times I hardly remembered them Until I read Watermark.This book exploded in my head, with all the crisp smells of the forest, all the dampness of untouched earth, the way it gets cold so fast in the evening, the way you hear things that might not be there In Watermark, those things are probably there Probably.These are spirits of another world tied into ours, and Ms Tobler brings them to life and haunts you with them For me, her strength has always been characterization The characters of Watermark are incredibly strong, but also incredibly mysterious Protagonist It s complicated Good and evil Not as simple as you d normally read Relationships Wow the relationships The characters might have known each other for thousands of years, they might have just met coincidentally, they might have been enemies, they might have been It takes a long time for the plot to straighten that out for you.In describing this to friends I compare it to Gaiman The book sort of slides along, with slow reveals and a emotional connection to the story than a blazing plot In fact, it can seem like there may not be a plot a times, just characters But then it starts to tie together, and as the reveals start happening, you realize you already knew it all That is a big part of the brilliance of this book, it s one of those where the author lets you live inside of the story and explain it to yourself There s nothing forced or false anywhere in this fairytale So I ve written an entire review without mentioning a single character or telling you what the book is about That s because it s really worth it to go meet these people well, sort of people , yourselves There are so many wonderful characters sewn into this tale, characters who seemed small loom large in my imagination weeks after finishing the book And the settings themselves are characters, very alive, very full of personality.With any luck Watermark will be a gateway back to the magical places in your life.Oh, and the main character has a good cup of coffee in her hands within ten pages Because that s how Ms Tobler starts everything.

    This is a gripping and beautifully written story about Pip, a kelpie who is banned from the Otherworld and ends up in Peak, Colorado, in the human world, without any clear memories of who or what she was before her banishment Tobler vividly describes the way the fae Otherworld mingles and bleeds into the human world, as the characters try to come to grips with a mysterious death, the mysterious appearance of Pip, while also trying to save the Otherworld from destruction I was drawn in completely to this strange and wonderful story from the very first chapter, and I read the last half of the book in a mad, page turning frenzy to find out how it would end.A marvellous cast of characters gives the story real depth and heart and oh, there are a lot of hearts in this story beating, and devoured , and I love how the fairy tales are turned upside down and inside out and are allowed to move and breathe in our reality.With gorgeous prose and also a moving love story or stories in the mix, this book is a keeper.

    This was too confusing The setting shifts from one place to the next without and transition, and the description of the settings are superficial to say the least.While the idea and the premise are promising, it just didn t grab me like I hoped.
