I have not written a book review before - so here goes:
When I read this book, it had been a while since I had read any fantasy ... but now the bug has bitten again - I enjoyed this book a lot. Patty has spun an interesting and exciting tale, where she builds a picture of a world different to our own, yet strangely similar, and I am now intrigued to see where the story goes in the next 2 books. I am glad Patty gave me a copy of this book to review, because I have enjoyed reading it.
