This is a much more serious adventure than I had been expecting.
This is a much more serious adventure than I had been expecting. I was prepared for something more along the lines of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Amy Green doesn't fill her story with much fluff, however. She weaves an interesting plot that incorporates Christian and faith based values.Was this review helpful?

The story moves along at a nice pace. The characters are nicely developed and you get to know and love Jesse throughout the book. You also learn that sometimes being different is not such a bad thing after all. Each of the characters have individual strengths that come in handy during their adventure. Jesse has a particular knack for reading people and knowing what they are thinking.
A really nice, Christian adventure story. I just couldn't decide if this was supposed to be dystopian fantasy, completely otherworldly, or historical fantasy. It had the feel of being historical, but some of the things that cropped up made me think that it was more dystopian.
Love the cover. It's perfect for a middle grade fantasy novel.
