I couldn’t put this book down! I read it in one day. I was immediately immersed in the story and characters. The author weaves her words with illustrative narrative and scenes that are readily conjured up in the readers mind. There is great pace to this book, from beginning to end, with clever twists that keep the reader immersed in the story.

I finished reading this story with my heart beating a little faster than normal and a feeling of great excitement to read more from this young, talented a

First up, as Denika's writing mentor I'm utterly biased. But then again, I read the manuscript several times and it was never boring as Denika has created a fascinating world full of danger and critters both cute and terrifying.

The story starts with Ivy falling into a world of ice and danger and almost into the hands of the Death Hunters themselves...

I'm not sure about this story. There is a continuity problem for one thing. One moment Ash is badly injured and the next she is up and about; not as an invalid, but seemingly completely better; able to fight even.
Where are the other people; the ordinary people who also live in this land; the farmers, shop keepers and the like. The people in the story get their food and supplies from someone. These missing details would have improved the story and added interest and depth.
I am impressed though th

Wow. This 16 year old author Denika Mead is an amazing writer. She inspired me to write my own novel.

This book drew me in the moment I started reading. She made it very easy to connect with the characters. I have loved selling this book at the Underground Bookstore in Wellington.

This was my introduction into fantasy. I loved the original ideas and adventure, and couldn't wait to read the next book in the series.

This fast-paced debut novel from young author Denika Mead had me hooked from the beginning. The story plummets the reader into in a unique new world with an air of mystery and plenty of action. The characters were believable and the story compelling. I found it hard to put down and I can't wait to read the prequel and the next book in the series. ...more
