really liked it

Such a treat to go straight from THIRTEENTH CHILD to this book, though now the wait for THE FAR WEST seems cruel and unusual. Wrede does a brilliant job further developing Eff and her loveable supporting characters, and I particularly liked the tone of self-discover that continues to run deep and wide through this series. Even Lan gets a little self-reflection, though it's unfortunate that it comes at a such a price. Wrede does a great job balancing Eff's possibilities without giving anything away, either personally or professionally. I can't wait to read THE FAR WEST to see what mysteries will be resolved.

Re-read #1 (9/24/15): The awkward adolescence of the characters and series, ACROSS THE GRAT BARRIER follows Eff through self discovery and growth.
