    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 just to understand wha 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 write...

    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 Each time I came to these I had to stop and trip over it and then figure out what she was trying to say I wish this had been editedheavily However, this was still one of the most enjoyable fantasy stories I have read in ...

    Ah, but have you ever read a book twice Books change each time you read them Of all the quotes from any film in the world I could use to describe my relationship with this book, I think the one that has always stuck with me was this particular quote from Mr Koreander from the second NeverEnding Story movie Books change each time you read them Of all the things I could ever have imagined, a logical minded child when I was younger and first saw that movie, that was absurd Printed word cAh, but have you ever read a book twice Books change each time you read them Of all the quotes from any film in the world I could use to describe my relationship with this book, I think the one that has always stuck with me was this particular quote from Mr Koreander from the second NeverEnding Story movie Books change each time you read them Of all the things I could ever have imagined, a logical minded child when I was younger and first saw that movie, that was absurd Printed word certainly didn t change, what a ridiculous concept, even if the NeverEnding Story film played with it Needless to say that child me had quite a few things ...

    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 your entire people The story gives the portrayal of someone whose development as a person as a full competent woman comes from life changing experiences that do NOT involve any sort of romantic feel...

    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.
