** I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR MY READING PLEASURE **
I'm on the fence about this one and I can't explain why. I'm somewhere between a 3.5 and a 4 star, but I've rounded up to the 4 because I think kids (between 10 and 15) will love it.
My main issue is that there are a lot of formatting issues with my copy. I'm not sure if every copy will be this way or if I've got an Arc, but every so often there is a chapter that is mis-formatted. Each paragraph (even when only one line) takes up an entire page so that one chapter takes forever to get through. It also broke up the ease of reading somewhat, but I do understand this isn't the author's fault. It could easily be a glitch that went unnoticed because it didn't appear until a few chapters in. But once it happened, it was probably that case in about 4 or 5 chapters.
There were a few spelling and grammar issues in the very beginning, but after the first three chapters, these fizzled out.
The fantasy aspect of the plot was good. There were a lot of creatures – Fae, bats, wolves, ogres – that kids will look for and love in a fantasy novel. They all play their part and some of them will be important in the following books.Read more ›

I recommend this to ages 13 and up! Looking forward to reading the next in the series.
Without a doubt this is one of the most wonderful books I have read in a long time. It is beautifully written and wraps around you, pulling you into a story that is a fantasy anybody would be thrilled to experience. Ogres, fairies, pixies, and a great number more fantastic creatures await your eyes and sometimes your nose. Honestly you feel you could reach out and touch, if not be walking beside the characters at any given moment. I recommend this for the younger set all the way to adults, it is a fantasy world that we should all get to enjoy. Many thanks to M.J. Bell for giving me her book to read and review, I am a huge fan now.
