The premise for this book was wonderful, however... the dialogue was atrocious and the made up language of puns and slang made no sense. It's like the author thought writing a children's book was just throwing together a bunch of silliness that didn't need to mean anything. There was also negative stereotyping and the good guys did bad things; which in my opinion has no place in children's literature. The writing was amateur at best.

I DNF'd this very early on I'm afraid as I realised it wasn't really something I was going to enjoy. The land and history seemed complex enough - to the point I was associating it with a YA fantasy - but the character was extremely young, and talked very young. I didn't think I would get on with her character at all so decided to bow out early on.

Lydia's Enchanted Toffee by Neale Osborne was a interesting book set in a candy world with a villian in charge. Can she and her friend defeat the villain chef? It was kind of hard to follow but overall a good book.

I admire the concept of the book. But it fell into the Did-Not-Finish zone, that's the reason why it's just one star. I tried to finish chapter 1 but we're not working out. But, I'm not giving up on this book. I'll try again next time.
