Even though Catherine Fisher's writing is sometimes abrupt, it's concise and gets the point and the feelings of the character across loud and crystal clear unlike many other books. Within the first few pages, it was obvious that the protagonist Cal had a strong, recognizable personality that I instantly liked. My heart really went out to him since he had to fend for himself for many a year because his mother was usually drunk and overlooked his existence, until he decided to go live with his uncle. When Cal stumbled upon the Castle Corbenic and witnessed the supernatural I was just as awestruck and mystified as he was. This entire novel emanates with a wonderful, mysterious aura that I just drank up as I read it. Even as I became more and more convinced of his madness, I kept silently rooting for Cal in my head and I sincerely wished that he would find the Grail.
