"Rothman's language and description are precise and well-tuned to an adolescent readership...a fair, heroic fantasy for the school-age demographic."
- Kirkus Reviews"There is a sweetness and light to this novel that often seems missing in modern fantasy. I think that a wise reader will recognize that this is something the world needs, and has been waiting for."
- David Farland, New York Times Bestselling Fantasy Author
"As an educator with a love for children and adolescent books, I found myself very interested in this book. There are so very few books that both adults and adolescents can enjoy and relate to. I'm glad to say this book is one of those few books." - Barbara Greenwald, Retired NYC Elementary School Teacher
"Let me say, before anything else, that Michael A. Rothman can most definitely tell a story! The Riverton family is one of the sweetest groups of people that I've ever met. Aaron, Ryan and their parents face a lot in this book, but they deal with it as a family. If you're looking for a wholesome read that will still draw in your young reader, this is it!" - Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile
