Review by: Tamie Dearen on June 14, 2014 :
I am proof that you don’t have to read these books in order. I started with number three, and I still haven’t read book one, Prince of Alasia, but I’m sure I will.
Let me just admit that I’m not a middle-grader, or a middle-grade teacher, or a middle-grade mom. But I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I did the Prince of Malorn. The author has a way of presenting the story so that it is simple enough for a middle-grader to understand, but complex enough for an adult to enjoy.
She does a great job of painting picture in your mind as the plot unfolds. I love that the central character is a “commoner”. You get to see how even an ordinary person with no special acclaim or position can be a hero simply by following their conscience.
If you enjoy fantasy with swords, drama, action, and intrigue, you’ll love this book!

Review by: Barbara Ellen Brink on March 24, 2014 :
I was pleasantly surprised by this engaging young adult novel. The young heroine, though only ten, is full of surprises, humor, and imagination. Middle-schoolers would most certainly love this story. It is involved, suspenseful, and definitely kept my attention. If you enjoy a good fantasy novel, complete with swords and treachery, this one has enough action, humor, and drama to supply many hours of reading entertainment. I have not read the 1st book in this fantasy series, but did not feel that it hindered my ability to follow the story at all. It can certainly stand on its own.

I thought that Annie did a great writing job here in the plot, characters,etc.
I liked the way she could also keep the reader's interest so that one found it was hard to put her book down even when one has to because of all the
errands and tasks one finds that they have to do daily,rightl? I gave her five stars on account of all the details that I have already mentioned above.
I received this book free and in exchange I am doing this review for the author now! I recommend this book for young and old, those who like to be kept on the edge of their seats wondering what's going to happen next. One may even find themselves rooting for the main characters in this story especially the good guys. Great job, Annie! By Angela
