When I closed the book my first thought was, “Why didn’t this book exist for me as a child?” I would have read this over and over without end. For lovers of Tamora Pierce here is a book for the younger generation. The writing is seamless and simple. Every little girl will sympathize with Igraine and every big girl too. You grin at her quirky family. I personally fell in love with the sorrowful knight. This is an adventure that scoops you up and carries away and afterwards you simply wonder, “Already?” This magical world will make you want to come back again and again.
