I won this through Goodreads Giveaway!

I didn't read the first book, so was missing some of the background, but even so, this charming fairy tale makes for a good standalone read. The author provided enough information that as I read along, I didn't feel like there were any gaps or holes to the story line.

The story is told from an omnipresent viewpoint, so we follow several characters, which the author does quite well. I felt no confusion as to which character was performing or thinking. The main character, Meg, is easy to feel empathy for as she struggles with having to make some extremely life-changing decisions, take some heroic steps and fights with what she feels is the unfairness of all that is presented to her. She does not get overly whiny nor does she suddenly turn super hero.

This is a book that fans of Narnia could appreciate as well as any reader looking for a light, creative and entertaining tale.
