Read from February 02 to 04, 2010

I really enjoyed this historical fiction/fantasy young adult novel. The setting is Medieval Northern England and is very realistic. There just also happens to dragons near the village.

This is the story of a young boy who meets the mysterious village outcast. She is just a girl and keeps herself covered at all times, but refuses to reveal why. The pair have adventures around the town and castle while their friendship grows. Some of the adventures turn out to be much more dangerous than they had bargained for.

As an adult, I found the book had enough happening to keep me interested. The descriptions of daily life was interesting as well. The book also described the village's conversion to Christianity. It seems Christianity had come to village some time earlier, but the native beliefs still remained in some form for many of the residents. I think this book would have a lot to offer the young adult audience.

I look forward to the rest in the series!
