Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
Now that Genna is finally learning sun wizard magic, she is bored out of her mind. She and her friend Catri and her brother Dan are still getting used to this new life when an encounter with a dragon takes Catri and Genna to the Spire, a place of evil and legends. While exploring this strange place with a talking cat, they meet a boy and in a moment's passion Catri kisses him, thus, according to custom, betrothing herself to him and disgracing Genna as her guardian. There are larger issues, at stake, though, especially once Genna is reunited with her family, who believed her to be dead. When they are taken to the Spire for their own safely, families are separated and the social structure of Genna's people is turned upside-down. Genna must once again face a dragon and learn more about her own powers to save the people she loves. This second book in the "Moon and Sun" series is a richly woven fantasy with some very memorable characters. While the author could have done a lot more with the social restructuring rather than summarizing it, overall the story was very well conceived and enjoyable. Reviewer: Amie Rose Rotruck
