I loved this book. I enjoy fantasy and really liked the two youths who find their strength through struggles in a frightening and changing world during ancient times. The central character is a girl who finds her personal strength through facing her fears and a boy who battles for manhood while dealing with grief and duty. I think it is well-written and has a very interesting plot and world.
I loved this book! It is exciting and different in the way it looks at the life of a teen. It had an interesting take on the complicated problems teens deal with in life and how they feel in the moment: not always the way we adults expect! The mystery and plot were very good, as was the character development; it was a great read! I would have loved it as a teen and it was excellent to read as a parent of teens, although I hope none of mine ever face such problems!
