I loved this book! It really pulled me in and I almost found myself trying to read more slowly because I wanted it to last. The writing was great, very smooth and well-paced. The plot was original and the characters were genuine! I like how everything tied itself together and then proceeded to tangle itself into a knot of emotion and talent. It was... It was great.

My only one problem with the book (there might've been two but I'm blanking on the second) was that I found no mention of how old Ben was. It was a little annoying (and if there was a mention of his grade, I apparently missed it). As a result, I had a little trouble fitting him into my head because I wasn't sure how much to expect him to understand, with respect to his mother and father's situation (which I'll admit I did see coming, at least the cause - and that's as spoiler-y-free as I think I can be).

So... Do you like scary books? Do you like well-written books? Do you like adventure and magic and children with talent? THEN READ IT. Trust me on this one.

Thanks! I did a little research after reading the book and figured it out but must have missed that line when I was reading it. Mildly frustrating but you're already ahead of me! Enjoy!!
