This is a thoroughly enjoyable fantasy book with rich world-building and characters who are three dimensional. I especially enjoyed the quest aspect, as well as getting to learn the nuances and differences of each of the different regions and cultures. Clearly the author has put a lot of work into creating a populated world with unique people and lands. The drawings from Serephoni’s sketchbook added to the story, and I enjoyed seeing her take on the fantastical creatures. It wasn’t until I saw the book’s Amazon page that I realized that it was a middle grade book; I found it truly engrossing and felt as if I were along for the journey with the characters. One warning, the book ends in a cliffhanger, so hopefully we’ll be seeing these characters again soon. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy unique fantasy realms.Check it out on Amazon!
