“Fantasy rarely dances through the imagination in more radiant garb than this.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“If you like ghost stories, if you like tales of boggles and boggarts and things that live just beyond our ken, then Tamsin will satisfy you completely. But be warned, Beagle's characters will stay in your heart forever, and he possesses the damnedest ability to make one cry by the end of the book. What reader can ask for more?”—Crescent Blues
“With…Peter S. Beagle novels, you know that what you're getting is something that has been lovingly and painstakingly crafted, and thus to be cherished. Tamsin…stands as another high-water mark in a career consisting of practically nothing but. Smashing storytelling…Electrifying entertainment in every way, Tamsin blends mystery, history, and the hope of love that blooms its strongest when you're very young, into a novel sure to become as dear to readers' hearts as The Last Unicorn.”—SF Reviews
“An appealing intermingling of history, folklore, and the supernatural.”—Kirkus Reviews

Tamsin was such a lovely surprise. A book I almost didn't get, clumped in with bunch of other books I'd been dying to read; it wound up being my favourite of the lot. I'd been hesitant because, knowing it was a classic of the fantasy genre, and having read many rave reviews, I'd already read Peter S. Beagles The Last Unicorn; however, in spite of (or perhaps because of) this, ultimately, it hadn't quite lived up to my expectations. I thought the writing was wonderful, I just didn't really connect with any of the characters. Having said that, because Mr. Beagle is such a legend, I decided to give him another try, and boy am I happy I did! Tamsin wound up being completely and utterly gorgeous, and perhaps the thing I wound up loving most about it (besides Jenny's unique voice, which, in my opinion, is the best use of first-person narration since Dodie Smith's classic I Capture The Castle) was the setting. The modern time period, in combination with the authors flowing, classic writing style, was delightful. And because Jenny's voice felt so real, and her world was in many ways very similar to my own; I felt it made the fantastical elements that much stronger, and unnerving.. If, for example, while I had been reading it, a boggart had appeared in my kitchen, or a ghost had sat down on the end of my bed, I'm sure I wouldn't have been surprised at all...
All in all, I thought it was absolutely fantastic, and definitely worthy of five stars.
