This book was received from the Author/Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I was super excited when Odyssey Books reached out to me about this book. Who doesnt love a good fantasy novel? Oh, and its a standalone, at least as far as I can tell. In this story, you have 5 races and they are all in danger of becoming extinct.

This is a really good book if you are just getting into fantasy. Even though this is a story dealing with five races it was a very

In general, I don't read YA novels, but this one pulled at my heartstrings. I loved the way the various creatures worked to communicate with each other considering the language differences between humans, dwarves, gnomes, elves and even animals. The strength of character exhibited by each and willingness to help each other in the midst of treachery was admirable. We need more of that today. Great read and great positive and negative examples of building civilizations.
