I read this to my 6 year old boy who is very sensitive. Both he and I thoroughly enjoyed the story! It was an absorbing story and enough going on to hold a 6 year olds attention. Yet it was not too scary. Nobody dies, or gets hurt. Not even the villain! Yet it is an adventurous story filled with all sorts of magical creatures. The characters are well developed. In addition to very strong imagery with many creative similes and metaphors,

    Decent

    I have the hardcover for this book, so didnt buy the ebook. It was fairly well written, a good book for preteens waning a longer book. The only problem i had with it was the mentality throughout the book of how evio humanity is.

    EH Ehh its alright

    I have rea better books.
    I didnt like how enviromental this book was. We as humans need to expand. If all our cities were as they were over a hundred years ago we would probably have three families all crammed together in one dang house. It was a good book but was a little boring at some times. But if you feel like you are bored just need to read something be my guest.
    The inkheart series and the theif lord are sprinkled with magic but this is not

    An absolutely wonderful adventure!

    I read this wonderful book to my daughter several years ago and it instantly became a favorite for both of us. She has since read it herself many times and is her go-to book for familiarity and a guaranteed comfort. I myself, have read this book for my own enjoyment and would recommend it to anyone 7 to 107!

    DRAGONS !! DRAGONS EVERYWHERE!!

    I think I made a mistake of reading this novel right after reading Eregon..Too much dragons for me. Another thing is the story seems a little childish, don't get me wrong, I love chidrens book but this book is a bit to much too childish than any of her older books. Come on Cornilia we need another 'thief lord' please!!!
