Valuable for the traditional lore about the land and the narrator's native culture. The prose itself is pretty average, and the first several chapters are full of badfic cliches. OTOH, it's YA and really pretty decent for a boy's adventure story. There's a fair bit of horror and violence, so I would recommend for age eleven to fourteen unless the child's pretty inured to gore.
