I've been a huge fan of fantasy novels for as long as I can remember, and Laura Power's first novel, Air-Born, is expressive and beautifully descriptive. Fairies, goblins, centaurs and gargoyles, there are so many different kinds of creature that are in this novel and it is a delight to get to know these interesting characters. The novel is filled with adventure, and I particularly loved the hints at the history of this Realm. My only (exceptionally minor!) quibble is that I would have liked there to be a map included of the world. Maps are always an interesting part of a fantasy novel, enabling the reader to connect different towns and areas in relation to each other.
All in all a great read, and I can't wait for book number two!
