Half World is an enjoyable and quick read, which I felt was like a dark faery tale, if I had to classify it. This is a unique tale from my perspective as I'm not versed in Asian lore. Melanie's trying to rescue her mother from Mr. Glueskin and along the way, is beginning to realize her potential and place in the world. I thought it was very empowering to the every day teenager, who doesn't fit in with what is considered "acceptable". I'm not sure I would consider her a 'hero', even though she is on the hero's journey. Does Melanie have what it takes to rescue her mother and save the Three Realms? Pick up this wonderful book and find out!!
