I usually approach Christian fantasy and science fiction apprehensively, just because I've read so many that I finish and think "I really didn't like that, and I will never read it again."
Coming from that perspective of "I'm not exactly sure how well this is going to go," this book blew me away.
I love how the author switches back and forth between the present and past, telling us more about the characters as we meet them. I love how perfectly the descriptions are balanced; enough to picture it,

I didn't enjoy this book. It was honestly too short for me to like any of the characters, and the going back in time was a bit confusing. Felix was cool though! Also, some things didn't make sense, like how Sara gained sword fighting skill last minute, how Jorrid talked normally with a girl whom he had been rude to the whole book, why would he explain things to her?

The whole story has the feeling of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe about it. It has the same charm as the C. S. Lewis stories, yet there is no doubt that this is a different
