This book was amazing! I first read Emily Rodda's series The Fairy Realm and I loved her writings. When I heard this story, I thought I wouldn't like it much. But that feeling changed quickly. Somewhere at the beginning of the first chapter. It was really exciting and meaningfull and I loved it. Actually, I'm thinking I like it better than Fairy Realm. I would have this book on my shelf and I like to look at it there. Please read it, it would be a a crime to miss.
