I really injoy this book. I was on ege on some parts. :) I can't wait to read the next one!!!!!! :)
I LOVED reading this book!!!! It has such a good plot and the characters are really interesting; my favorite character is Verity, she is so brave!!!!! Although this book is REALLY good, I think the next one, Heart of Stone, is even better (It's more exciting, has more adventure and is also more mysterious.).
At the heart, this is a book about a book. A story about stories. But more than that it is an enchanting tale with skilfully crafted characters, a richly painted context and a plot that is truly captivating. ML Welsh is a new author for children who deserves our attention. I eagerly await l her next book, but until then... read this!
