She leads the boys on a difficult journey into the mountains in search of the elusive birds. A strange little man becomes their guide.

The students were chosen to take sides in the battle which might spell the end of the world: a battle between the demons and the spirits.

I must say this was a super fun read! The characters were believable, easy to identify with, and fun to root for. To me, it was a mixture of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Alchemist, and Eragon. The combination of myth and legend blended seamlessly with the setting of ancient Persia. Clear descriptions, strong action, and a steady pace added up to an all around solid piece of work. I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's writing. Certainly, I would recommend it for others to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
