I ordered this on a whim and read it within a few days. It really hits its mark for A young adult fantasy lovers. It’s well written with a tantalising mix of magic, adventure and a touch of romance. I could easily picture myself in the story and fell In love with the characters. The ending is clearly set up for a squeal, and I cannot wait to see what comes from this author next. 5 big stars from me!

I devoured this story and was completely sucked into the adventure. This is the sort of book that as a child/ young adult would have been one of my favourites, it has magic, mystery, action and just enough romantic teenage angst running in the background of the story of a strong female lead!
Can’t wait for the next instalment!

I was directed to this book from a search as I read similar items. It was from an author I had not heard of before and thought I would give it a try. I am so glad I did, I really enjoyed this book i read it in a few days and couldn’t put it down. I could feel a real connection to the characters and the journey they are just beginning, can’t wait for the next instalment, hope it’s not too far away.
