Perfect for a magical fantasy novel, this was did everything that I was looking for from the description. The characters were what I enjoyed and I was glad I was able to go through the story with them. Barbara Ferrier has a great writing style that works well for the genre. I hope there is more in this series but I enjoyed the way Ms. Ferrier writes so I look forward to more from her.

“You can do that?” he asked. Asa looked him in the eye. She couldn’t believe she was admitting that she used magic to her Uncle Silas. Only a few days ago, she would have been in a lot of trouble. She nodded, then smiled. To her utter surprise he slowly nodded back and smiled too.

What a wonderful magic read! It is enchanting and I was hooked from the first page. I highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys magical worlds and a little bit of rebelliousness!

I like the author's storyline, she came up with unique details I found interesting. I wouldn't say I have any negative views on the book except I think it was a little young for me. I think this is a wonderful story for a child, full of fantasy and magical beasts, life lessons and wonder.

At oome point in the book, I felt like it was dragging a little, and then at others, it was extremely fast paced - especially nearing the end.

Other than that, it was an interesting story and I am glad I read it.

I found the story to be magical and a very fun read! It read as a bit juvenile to me, but I don't think that would be an issue at all for the right reader!
