A very well-crafted story. I've recently drifted away from the sword-and-sorcery, elves-and-dragons type books, but I found this to be quite entertaining.

There are some things that I still can't eat my head around, but I'm sure they will be truly answered in a sequel. The writing is okay, there are some points where the book could do with a tightening, but almost every scene appears to pull the plot onwards.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I was enticed to keep turning the pages to read chapter after chapter. The characters are engaging and you become attached and interested to see how their storylines develop. I am eagerly awaiting the next two books to discover more. For anyone that loves this genre young and old alike I highly recommend this book.

Wow! I'm really enjoying this book. The story is beautifully written. The characters are strong and well defined. It's a book that's speaking to me and my own struggles with invisibility and looking for acceptance.

I started reading this book because my brothers recommend I buy it because my name is Marilla. From page one I was hooked. Anyone who enjoys fantasy books should give it a read. Beware you will fall in love with these characters.
