really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, read-to-may

The last of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles and I think the strongest of the lot. Wrede moves from 3rd person narration to 1st person as she moves forward in time by a generation to follow the quest of Daystar, Cimorene's son. Large chunks of the early part of Daystar's adventures in the Enchanted Forest reminded me of Neil Gaiman's poem Instructions: Everything You Need to Know on Your Journey.

May became rather enamored of the brash fire-witch Shiara. She now wants to dye her hair fire-engine red and dress as Shiara for Halloween (2012 - she's going to be Isabelle from Mouse Guard, Volume 2: Winter 1152 this year).

I really enjoyed doing the voices. Suz, the polite little golden lizard is definitely my favorite. "I am?" says Suz with a squeaky little voice "I really am! How wonderfully surprising!"
