Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brightly Woven (Hardcover)
I'm going to start by saying I bought this book purely for the cover. Before you tell me that is shallow just look at it. It is gorgeous.
I did enjoy this book even though fantasy isn't my thing at all. The book is well written and is fast paced action adventure meaning that I finished it very quickly. The main character Sydelle was sweet but feisty and I warmed to her quickly. It took me ages to warm to North (although I did in the end) as he come across badly to start with but I think this is intentional. It was nice to read a young adult book that wasn't full of bad language and/or sex (which many authors seem to think must be in a young adult novel to keep it engaging). The story was charming and completely unpredictable. I didn't once guess where it was going and it concludes quite nicely.
to sum up a fab little book which I enjoyed despite it not being at all the type of book I usually read. I will definately keeping my eye out for future Bracken releases.
