From the tour … a little one, but very positive from a YA fantasy book reviews blog Bookworm for Kids.
This novel has a wonderful mixture of reality and fantasy, which make the world refreshing and easy to dive into. The main character, a girl of seventeen (Ariel), is well done – her emotions are all over the place, as expected for someone of this age group, especially when thrown into such amazing situations. She was easy to like from beginning on and hard to let go of in the end (which means a dive right on into book 2!)
The scenes are vivid and the situations pull at all emotions. I found myself giggling, unsure and sometimes simply a little nervous as Ariel goes on her journey. The other characters in the book were lovable (or easily disliked) and added a lot of color to the story as the plot rushed from one scene into the next.
Simply said, it was an enjoyable read, and I’m looking forward to book 2.
She’s also posted a cute excerpt that you might be interested in.
