This extremely well written novella really draws you in from the get-go. The writing style is very approachable and the storyline itself is intriguing to the point that you can’t let go. It is action packed while remaining approachable to younger readers. The author neither talks down to their audience nor do they attempt to use vocabulary directed at a scholarly audience. They simply tell a captivating tale in a very appealing manner. It’s a story that makes you think, dream, and feel all at the same time.
The characters in this story definitely made me giggle. At the beginning, it was almost a comedy of errors, everyone being someone else and passing by who they were looking for. The characters themselves were also quite intriguingly developed. Their characteristics are revealed gradually, allowing you to get to know them through their actions rather than simply through description.
The author melds history with the present, and mythology with reality in this brilliant tale that is a great read for those of all ages. The more I read from this team, the more I enjoy them.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
