This is one of the latest books of the Avatar series. My daughter is a fan. Easy to see why. It's a quick-paced, well-constructed good old story about the daily (ordinary) struggle of (extraordinary) people. Battle between Good and Evil with changing success and both intermingling and mutating. A lot, growing-up people can relate to, about friendship, relationships, living with differences, changing attitudes, perseverance and self-control. Just like the real life. I am glad I can cut out a lot of explaining, particularly when they are more inclined to listen to others then their own parents. It has a feel-good factor too. So, I approve.
