    One thought on “Everard's Ride”

    1. Everard's Ride is very obviously an early work. In fact, had I not known it was DWJ I doubt I would have guessed. It's a bit as if she's attempting something in the style of E. Nesbit. It's not bad, but it's not really memorable, either. I was surprised to discover that I hadn't read it before. For completeness, by all means read it, but it's a long way from typical DWJ.

    2. I read this in Mixed Magics, but this one specifically changed me. I'm not sure how, but I had this morbid fascination with it, years ago, and read it over and over and over and am now left with a feeling of a) forgetting something and b) being different. Which maybe should be concerning.

    3. The title story was ok but a bit young for me; I preferred No One and the True State of Affairs. Plague of Peacocks reminded me a bit of the Pinhoe Egg from the Chrestomanci series.
