Review by: Marina Fontaine on Jan. 11, 2013 :
The author described this book as Atlas Shrugged meets Harry Potter. It's SORT OF correct, but it's more Nathaniel Branden's Psychology of Self-Esteem than Atlas Shrugged. Every chapter has a long discussion of an teen's issue (usually involving low self esteem caused by faulty worldview) AND an exciting magical battle. It does require a measure of patience and good attention span, so I'm not sure how appealing it would be to an average teen (my son has already read Atlas Shrugged, so he found this one entertaining in spite of its structure). Give it a try and see for yourself.
