I think this was the first Doranna Durgin book I ever read and I got the title from a list of 'best Fantasy' ever from a forum I came across.
I loved this story. The dogs/dog behaviour and human/dog interactions were realistic and engaging. The characters were well drawn and the mystery and magic were believable. The development of the story was really well paced. All in all, a great read.
This was such a great trilogy. I think it must be quite a challenge to write several books all from the POV of a person writing about their experiences in their diary. The author created an interesting world with compelling characters and a complex mystery as well as exciting action. I loved the main character Cassandra. She was so young yet so courageous, inventive, intelligent and good natured. This is a sci-fi/fantasy story that could be enjoyed by adults and young adults alike.
