it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, fiction, childrensbooks
Recommended for: everyone with an inner child
Read in December, 2007

Loved every second, and didn't want it to end, so I had to find a book store and buy the next two! Its a Harry Potter reading level and similar type fantasy story, but sometimes thats what you need on a long flight to NYC for the holidays!

I think as a child we all daydreamed about alternate worlds, so I love how thats the basis for the book. Thinking about all the permutations of how things could turn out differently is kinda fun :) I think if I had a Daemon I would hope she'd settle on being a lynx.

lynx love the review! totally agree!

message 2: by Petra Eggs (new)

Petra Eggs Link doesn't work. But that's ok I know what a lynx looks like! I would kind of like an alternative reality right now. My bookshop got flooded and I had to throw out 40 garbage bags of books. Harry Potter beam me up!
