really liked it
Read in May, 2007

What intrigued me into buying this book was Dickinson's resume as a writer, as well as the storyline itself. I loved the setting, the use of music along with magic, and the concept of salamanders wielding supernatural gifts. This is a short book, but feels to me to be the perfect length. As a writer, Dickinson has a sophisticated style that is nonetheless palatable to young readers. And wow, what a resume!!
