This story was compact and well-written, with a suspenseful dilemma that had to be seen through, but that was brought to resolution as part of this efficient story. I found the characters to be credible, and though they were not all human, they were relatable, with resonant human qualities. After reading this book, I was open to reading more and was glad to discover it was part of a series. Five stars.
The story is fast-paced and never stops moving. Editing was professional and never spoiled my enjoyment of the tale. A worthy read for anyone looking for a YA tale of protagonists unwilling to accept an unfair fate.
My favourite character was Zadeki: a mysterious stranger from the forbidden 'outside' who has somehow come into supposedly impenetrable mountain. His secret was a well-written surprise which sets the tone for more enlightening. He is brave and would risk his own life for what he believes in.
I would recommend this novella to those who enjoy a short and entertaining fantasy read.
Four and a half stars from me.
I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
I would argue this is on balance a children's story, for middle grade readers as the protagonists seem young. The plot is linear and clear, the violence clean, the hope real, the storyline engaging and the danger is present but not fear-inducing. An enjoyable quick read.
I received a free copy from By the Light Books. All opinions in the review are my own.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I read this and I was surprised how original and how engaging I found it, how invested I found myself in the resolution and, really, isn't that what we want in a story?
