it is good for the type of people who like adventure and fantasy. I gave it five stars.
Fantastic is the word to describe it.
When Zaria turns twelve, she learns that she is more important than she thought she was. And after she takes a trip to Earth, she realizes how much she loves it, even though her family was supposedly killed by a human after going through a portal.
She soon learns that people in Feyland want her power. Even Lily, who is her mentor and the Forcier who collects the radia tax every year. When Zaria realizes that Lily isn't as good as she seems, Lily puts spells on her and her friends. Zaria has to learn to use her power to help quickly!
This was a cute fairy story. I think the younger YA audience will enjoy it, and it's a different take on the Fey world. Here, fairies are human-sized, have levels of magic (but they only have a certain amount they can use), and they have wands.
I enjoyed reading about Zaria. She was a cute character who had some pretty good morals. But she had a backbone, too. Her friends were much the same way.
This was a light, quick read. I feel like a lot was left unanswered at the end, though. I want to know more about what happened to Zaria's family, and where Lily went. I'm not sure if there is going to be a sequel or not, but I hope there is.

I would recommend this book to the younger audience, not the older Y5/Y6 ones.
