“… [a] vivid fantasy world where danger lurks at every turn and the plot twists on every page. It bears all the hallmarks of the genre, including powerful magic, baffling prophecies, breathless chases, heroic battles, evil adversaries, a thundering climax and a quest that seems impossible to fulfill. There are… undertones of bigger themes, but this is a wonderful piece of fantasy that will enthrall readers in the twelve plus age group.”
