The book is well written and held my interest throughout. There is some scene setting at first but then the pace of the book quickens and I just wanted to keep reading so that I could find out what happens. My favourite part was the myths. They are all original and fit into the story really well.
I loved the atmosphere of the book. There is great world-building - enough description to make the world come to life, without slowing down the plot.
I found it really moving and easy to connect with the characters. They felt like real people to me, and I wanted to know more about them, about their lives. The storyline touches on what it means to belong and on finding acceptance.
I think there's something in this book for everyone to enjoy. It's not racy like a lot of other books out there for teens. It's something I'd be happy to share with both my daughter and her grandmother.
I look forward to what this author will write in the future. At the end there is a hint that the story will continue--I certainly hope so!

Fantastic and magical. The best two words I can give this novel. And they’re strange to hear from me. That’s how good this book was.
