This was the advantage of the cut-off or breaks of the narrative. The feminist perspective was enough to satisfy me — especially from a female fey. Each of them had their own stories and I loved reading about them. I recommend this to readers who like retellings and the Arthurian legend, to patient readers and to those who like this kind of narrative. Sep 23, Katie rated it liked it. Percival's Angel is a very odd book.
I'm torn about how I feel about it. The story was not bad but it was very different and I had a very hard time getting into it. It's just a very weird book and this review is really hard for me to write. Lili has never known life outside the Fey forest. She has never had the urge to know it either until Merlin tells her about the powers of the Human heart.
Lili sets out on a quest to get a Human heart along with her best friend, Percival, who is on his own que Percival's Angel is a very odd book. Lili sets out on a quest to get a Human heart along with her best friend, Percival, who is on his own quest to become a knight. Along the way both Lili and Percy will face great trials and their friendship will be tested.
Will Lili get a Human heart? Will Percy become a knight? Will their two quests tear them apart? Anne Elliot Crompton's writing style is very different. It seemed disjointed to me. Also, the point-of-view switched a lot and sometimes it took me a while to ever realize ti was a different person. There was absolutely no warning. So not only did the writing confuse me, so did the point-of-view switching.
The characters were just okay.
Not bad but definitely not great. Lili was a bit contradictory. She said she wanted a heart because she didn't have one but her actions made me think that she did. Percival just seemed kind of dumb. Nothing he did endeared me to him. I don't know how else to explain it. Overall, Percival's Angel is definitely a book I recommend getting from the library.
BookLoons Reviews - Percival's Angel by Anne Eliot Crompton
It just did not do anything for me and I honestly just did not like it. Dec 23, Mayra rated it it was ok. This wasn't as good as Merlin's Harp. I felt like in this there was a bit too much lyrical writing, and after awhile it got kind of annoying. I do still enjoy the descriptions, but parts of this were kind of depressing, and it largely felt like an excuse to talk about how stupid humans were.
There wasn't much of a plot. Why does Lilli want a human heart if she thinks that humans are such clumsy and foolish creatures? I felt sorry for Percival, on finding out that every task and duel he has compl This wasn't as good as Merlin's Harp. I felt sorry for Percival, on finding out that every task and duel he has completed was really set about by Lilli. I suppose part of the point being made is that in the stories and folklore, you always pay attention to the man, when really the woman is the one making all the difference.
But I didn't find Lilli particularly likable, maybe because even though she was supposed to be the main character, the book never got inside her and showed what she was feeling about all that was going on. Did she actually have feelings for Percival or not? And once again, why did she quest for a human heart in the first place?
Jul 12, Susanna rated it really liked it Shelves: This book has a lot going for it: There's not much action to the plot, but it's not boring. What makes this novel "eh" is that it can be confusing. They weren't really random, it was just that their importance in the story, as well as how the story had led up to them, was left unexplained.
It became frustrating after a while, especially since Crompton's otherwise a good author and writes an interesting retelling. It's left me with mixed opinions on Percival's Angel. Review originally posted on my blog: Mar 12, Anna rated it liked it Shelves: Lili is fey, once part of the Children Guard.

Percival also learns about the knights' quest for the mysterious Holy Grail and becomes determined to find his way to King Arthur so that he might be knighted and seek out the Grail for the King.
A lanna refuses to let Percival leave for the world she has sheltered him from all his life. However, Percival is determined to leave the Fey forest.
