    Well, this book took me a long time This was my longest read in awhile, and though that was mostly due to life getting super busy, the book was also just really slow And so I liked it, but it just kinda dragged on and on, and I am a little relieved to be finished with it now I am glad I revisited this one years later, because I do think that Peter Dickinson is a talented writer and is able to craft a nice story But there were some parts I would have to read a few times...

    Tilja s home is in the Valley, protected by magic from the powerful Empire When the magic begins to fade, Tilja must set out with three companions on a quest to renew the magic along the way, she finds her own unusual powers This is a really good YA fantasy, with excellent worldbuilding, interesting magic, and a heroine I liked very much and also her crotchety grandmother...

    I think this started off really strong and then got dragged out towards the end I also think this suffers from really unfortunate cover art The descriptions of magical events were really vague, sometimes confusing, and important events were over too briefly Several times I kept thinking, Oh, so it s over already Those last three sentences were the whole battle Hmm One last problem was the lack of editing Many of the sentences were incomplete or simply didn t make sense and weren t worde I think this started off really strong and then got dragged out towards the end I also think this suffers from really unfortunate cover art The descriptions of magical events were really vague, sometimes confusing, and important events were over too briefly Several times I kept thinking, Oh, so it s over already Those last three sentences were the whole battle Hmm One last problem was the lack of editing Many of the sentences were incomplete or simply didn t make sense and weren t worded correctly ...

    This book sat sitting on my shelf for the longest of times I kept telling myself that I would pick it up and read it and yet I always ended up reading something else instead When I finally got around to reading it I was exceptionally surprised.The book itself was much better than I d been expecting Whilst there were some predictable moments the storyline did manage to keep me hooked from...

    This book was a short fairytale padded and padded and padded out into a 300 page novel The story plodded along in a fairytale fashion and then, and then, and then and the magic was vague undefined fairytale magic with only the most basic vaguely defined magic system underlying it all Tilja and Tahl and their grandparents meet people They get saved They meetpeople People tell them...

    It s a shame this book didn t live up to its promise The world building was good, the magic interesting But I felt no emotional connection to the story or its characters This book was missing heart and emotion and so I couldn t really bring myself to care.

    This book has something that came as a very welcome surprise for me it deals with the troubles of a girl traveling to the outside world to save her whole village from an evil that threatens to destroy it while having absolutely no power and no means, and in the process she NEVER, not even for a moment, has any sort of romantic plot whatsoever In fact, it s not even mentioned any sort of involvement with anyone because why would you even put a love plot where you have to deal with surviving mag This book has something that came as a very welcome surprise for me it deals with the troubles of a girl traveling to the outside world to save her whole village from an evil that threatens to destroy it while having absolutely no power and no means, and in the process she NEVER, not even for a moment, has any sort of romantic plot whatsoever In fact, it s not even mentioned any sort of involvement with anyone because why would you even put a love plot where you have to deal with surviving magical assassination attempts from an empire that wants to destroy yo...
