After enjoying this book I have a hard time not believing its world actually exists somewhere, maybe in Nova Scotia. Fantastic in all senses of the word. Now on to book two in the series.

From my review of the book at This first book in Diane Lynn McGyver's Castle Keepers series is very well done and will keep you turning pages right to the end. What I particularly enjoyed in this solidly mainstream fantasy is its fresh focus on established themes. It's like an award-winning movie director telling the person behind the camera to lower or raise the picture in the viewfinder for a new angle. The fantasy world McGyver has created has the magical beings you might expect, but you'll see them in new ways and see their story with fresh insights. At 190 centimeters I'm taller than the average person; the book made be believe I was seeing a magical world from a height a little less than half that. Enjoy.
