Catches you with the first scene and doesn’t let you go
This family friendly adventure is written in an engaging style reminiscent of the masters of epic fantasy. The vivid world created by the author certainly has the potential to spark the imagination and awaken inquisitive young minds. The characters are extremely likable with truly fun special abilities. The story offers lessons about life and relationships while remaining true to the fantasy epic formula, a great struggle against impossible odds between good and evil. The lessons are properly blended into an exciting tale that features a classic menagerie of fairytale creatures and an evil magician who is clearly bad, but not too frightening. This is an excellent read for the whole family, perhaps one chapter at a time, out loud, over breakfast each morning.
