bookshelves: young-adult, fantasy
Read in September, 2010

Ages 10+

Honestly, I liked this book quite a bit more than I had expected during the first 75 pages or so. My daughter had read and enjoyed it so I kept with it. I was in the mood for a real fantasy novel and in the early stages it felt more like historical fiction (wrong meal for my current appetite as it were).

Fortunately, the book took a turn towards the more fantastic and the character development that was well done in the early stages of the book continued.

Despite have a male and female as the main characters there was no romance or mature subjects in the story, which is a nice break from most of the urban fantasy I'm reading these days, but it was not contrived given the ages of the characters.

Definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys YA fiction.
