really liked it
bookshelves: scifi-fantasy
Recommended to Annalisa by: I think I found it at the library
Recommended for: sci-fi/fantasy fans, especially girls ages 10+

This was the first book of the Gryphon trilogy I read, and it really took me to another world. Norton has the ability to create very alien, magical landscapes and compelling charcters, both of which I found engrossing as a young girl. Especially because the main character was also a young girl on a quest. I don't remember all the specifics, (there was a guy she became involved with, and an underground maze, and desert, and some special jewels, and secrets about a long lost civilization... I should probably read it again) but really enjoyed it, and read it several times.
