If you're a fan of fantasy, mages, ravens, cranky anti-heroes, and steam boats, you should probably give this a read.

I picked up this book at a used book store for maybe two dollars. It turns out it was a two dollars well spent indeed.

This has always been one of my favorite books. There's no pathetic romance, no sniveling girl. Just a pissed off bird mage trying to get her sister back. This must take place in Scotland, because a lot of the vocab was a bit foreign (I looked up the origins of some of the words). Don't let the book size fool you, either. The print is rather teensy.

Recommends it for: late elementary to early high school kids
A fairly riveting young adult fiction novel. I wish author had gone more in-depth into who the characters were, but I think this might be a sequel and I haven't read the first book. Defintealy setting up for a series.

While there was nothing extraordinary about this setting, the simplicity of it made it feel all the more real. The story was all chase, and I could barely put it down!
