This book has a rich gothic edge to it which I loved. The crows are dark, and terrifying. The meal of choice for the famoose (fairies of a very different kind) grossed me out perfectly. It really is a fully constructed, compelling read. I loved it.
I don't want to give away too many spoilers, but prepared to be engrossed enough to be propelled straight into book two.
There is so much brilliance in this book for little people that I ordered two paper copies for children in the family. Needless to say, they are as absorbed as I was.
Rich, imaginative, action packed... it was a definite win for me. The characters stay with you and I hope there will be many more adventures in store for Kimi. I'd love to see her grow into a feisty young woman one day!
`I thought it was really good. I've read loads of fantasy stuff but I liked this one because of the main character being a girl and she's kind of cool with a deformed hand. And oh yeah, Marmite!
I'm scared of birds so the crows were proper scary. She gets to go to this other world called Heart and it reminded me a bit of when Alice fell down the rabbit hole, which is still one of my favourite books.'

So, if I could just get my two-pennyworth in...
This was not my usual read but I do like to venture off the path of tried and tested now and again.
It's the eve of Kimi's eleventh birthday and she thinks her parents are off to a secret meeting to arrange her birthday treat, but when mum and dad don't return and a strange crow appears, Kimi is drawn into another world. The world of Heart; a world full of amazing characters and magic, sometimes dark, dangerous magic.
This story is full of rich colour. The workings of your imagination will be dragged to the very perimeter of your mind. Well drawn characters and a perfect read for the teenage market and also for those, ahem... young at Heart.
It's Kimi's eleventh birthday tomorrow and she's sure her parents are off to a secret meeting to arrange for a dreamy pink limo as part of her birthday treat. But when the crow arrives, everything changes. Kimi comes into contact with Magic. Big Magic. Dark Magic. Dangerous Magic. Without her mum and dad, who've disappeared off the face of the earth, Kimi has to negotiate the world of Heart, with its unusual, powerful and sometimes disgusting inhabitants.
Wonderful, terrifying and original, this story will stretch your imagination, Kimi will enter your heart and you won't be able to sleep until you know whether or not she's safe.
The twist and turns leave you desperate to turn the page to discover what happens next. This is a fantastic read that can be enjoyed by both adults and children, I'd recommend this to anyone as I can assure you that you won't be left disappointed, only eagerly anticipating the sequel.
There are characters called Tulpas, Balancers and greylians. And names such as Big Sue-great!
The main character Kimi meets all of these and more- even another world called Heart with it's strange creatures with brain eating habits,
The imagination and attention to detail is amazing and will certainly leave you wanting more!
A great and different read, can't wait for the sequel!!
