The following is an honest review of Small Favors by Erin A. Craig and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of Small Favors
Ellerie Downing lives in Amity Falls, a small village in the middle of nowhere. The village is surrounded by forests and they rarely have visitors. After a fatal supply run, the village begins having encounters with stranger mythical creatures. Some worry that the monsters who stalked them in the past have returned while others think Ellerie is making up stories. When winter arrives things only get worse. The people of Amity Falls have frequent encounters with the monsters and are scared for their lives. Ellerie must figure out how to protect her family, the boy she loves, and the village before its destroyed.
Review of Small Favors
This book is PERFECT. While I would recommend anyone to read this, it is the perfect, cozy fall/winter book. Small Favors is a Rumpelstiltskin retelling but it gives off immaculate The Village vibes. This book is character and plot driven while still having beautiful atmospheric writing.
I loved Ellerie as as main character. She was the perfect female mc. Ellerie is a strong female lead who is brave but also still has the side of her that is maternal and a caretaker. It was the perfect balance and her as a character seemed very real.
The twists in this book were great! It is a bit of a lengthy book but it didn’t feel too long at all.
I gave Small Favors 5/5 stars on Goodreads.
Age Rating of Small Favors
I am giving Small Favors a suggested age rating of 13 and up. There are some dark elements such as murder, and someone is hanged. There is also some romance and from what I remember little to no language.
