I was able to "see" Sierra as she interacted with her surroundings. I could feel her fear, pain, excitement, etc. throughout the book. I got a view into Sierra's personality and the other characters, which many times set the scene. For example whenever Jack showed up, I cringed and would feel fear. I started to care what was happening to the characters in the book, and that's what made it a page turner for me.
The author also did a fantastic job adding to the "being there" feeling by developing the setting with vivid, colorful pictures and sounds. I was able to easily imagine the surroundings of each scene as it pertained to the plot. Near the end, I was totally caught up in the story; I could actually see, touch, feel, and taste what Sierra was going through. Who cares if it was late into the night and I needed to get up early tomorrow! I was finishing the book, and it left me a bit breathless!
It is an awesome story for any teen or adult who appreciates good fiction. I highly recommend it.
The book has a slow, steady pace that introduces the characters and the world to the reader the story and the characters develop as the book progressed, giving the intended target audience (middle graders) the chance to enjoy the story and watch the characters as they grow and adapt. We watch as each character learns that each of them is more than the role that life has handed them.
Sierra our lead character hates the I've she's been born into but suffers for the sake of her sister, putting up with an abusive father and its not until her fairy Queen disappeared and her father sells her sister off to someone worse than their father that she finally sets off on a quest to find her fairy Queen, with her best friend Corbin and with her fathers enforcer Nell along to keep an eye on her, the embark on a journey that reveals the task ahead is more complicated than they thought.
I especially liked how Nell had to become something she didn't really want to be to help her family survive and how Sierra came to realise that it was wrong of her to judge her. They become a great team ready to overcome the task ahead, through adversity and self sacrifice . I also think that the book gives the reader food for thought on how we are also depleting our world and the story also brings into light physical abuse and drugs. I look forward to reading Met Charmer next.
I have read a lot of books about many different mythical creatures, but this was my first fairy experience. I have to say that I enjoyed it, but at the same time, I thought it could have been so much more. It had potential, but it fell flat.
I liked the book, and didn't have much complains on it, other then I noticed I flipped several pages in the book in different places, showing that the scenes were dragging. Still, I believe that the story didn't reach the highest of heights with wonderment that it could have. If the author cut out the scene that were dragging, and filled the book with more magical creatures and scenes, other then our young-heros wondering an empty forest for a week, the book could have been so much better.
I was bored once the drama and the pending fear of her father was out of the picture. After that you was left with three children lost climbing a mountain while trying to figure out what they were doing, which wasn't very interesting. The only major issues I really had with the book is that the ending seemed wrong. It was rushed, and I didn't feel satisfied with it at all, which brought the book down for me by a lot.
The writing and voice of the book was very good, so if it seems like I'm complaining a lot or something, I'm really not, because in the end I finished the book and I had a good time. I think other people will too.
