A first reads win!

An interesting tale, I figured out at least part of the premise well before the end. Two kids dealing with the death of their mother and the relocation to an estranged grandfather's home are thrust into a story that their grandfather made up. As they try to find their way, they may find healing as well.

Overall, I liked the story and characters. The children are a little typecast (behavioral issues and refusing to talk) but the tale is engaging.

Great read! The story captures you from the beginning, then you can't wait to get to the end, but then you are sad there isn't more to come.
