This is my favourite book of the series. This is a combination of a great story line and the fact that I adore the 2 main characters. Although the book is called Damia, Afra has just as much if not more focus in the book.
This book does have more adult themes in it than any of the other books in the series. Nothing graphic but parents should probably have a quick read before youngsters read it. I read it for the first time when I was about 10 and most of the adult stuff passed straight over my head with me only picking up on it when I have reread it.
This book is still as good on a second reading as on the first.
