Absolutely fantastic heroine! You'll fall in love with her and become completely enchanted by the storytelling here -- I could not put it down. Some of the most imaginative language I've ever read in a novel, and I found myself laughing at a few very familiar one-liners Wilce scattered throughout the book. I can't wait for its sequel and encourage any fantasy book fan to pick this one up. All too often, the genre lacks quality plots and gifted writing both, but this one nails them both.

Aimed at younger readers (the protagonist is almost 14), this intriguing fantasy weaves a world based very loosely on Aztec mythology. Magic, combat, puzzling castles and will-sucking beings--all of these are challenges for the female protagonist who fights for her very disfunctional family. Most fantasy fans will enjoy this clean and very smart and funny fantasy adventure.

OK, now for the second book included in this volume,Flora's Dare: though the novel is well told, with appealing plot and adv

Enjoyable fantasy. I can't wait for the third installment of the series! The author knows how to write characters, and is adept at character development. This series is aimed at kids, but it's worth a read, even if you're an adult.

For the life of me, I can't get into this book. I've tried three times now. I think I will just take it to school and turn my my gifted readers lost on it and see what happens. Maybe someother time, I will be able to get through it.

One of the most amazing books I've ever ever read! The character structure is amazing and the plot and dialouge are too. Definetly a two thumbs up!

Really good, except for a few dirty parts. But I like Flora. She's fat and not very pretty, and I like her.

“After all, history is a type of fantasy. For all the primary source research, in the end, the past world the historian builds is as weird and remote from our own as Middle Earth or Narnia, yet oddly familiar.” 18 likes
