Secchia is a master at dialogue and this book steps that skill up another notch. He moves between worlds and species with a witty and trademark conversational nonchalance that actually made me laugh out load. Come on now, having a horse character complain that horse hide makes them itchy is pretty unique! He always makes the physical environment a key component of every book and this one steps that up also. The topography and magical creatures in one world and the physical beauty and struggles of another interplay wonderfully.
But of course, the game changer is character development and this books sings, or neighs, with strong characters. They grow organically throughout the read and their actions are as natural as one could expect given the various species transformations.
This is a well-written and fast-paced novel with fun and intriguing plotting and a solid storyline. I look forward to the next installment of Equinox. Just when I thought this author could not surprise me more, he did. I highly recommend this fun book for readers of all ages who enjoy well-written fantasy adventure. Canter on over to your sofa, or barn, and enjoy the fun!
I really enjoyed it.
Content wise, there is a bit of high level flirting, some intense moments (basically they get the worst out of the way right off the bat as the character endures a catastrophic car accident within the first chapter ... but other traumatic incidents are peppered within) and there is some incidental nudity (characters shift between worlds, arriving without clothes) but more on the awkward side than anything else. Probably for me this would be a PG13 but it depends on a young reader's sensitivities.
This is a story of a teenage girl's courage facing a life altering event and how she learns to go on living; as well as discovers more about an enchanted world in which she keeps finding herself.
I can't really say more about that or I'll give too much away. The reader really needs to experience the story as the plot unfolds.
This book is different from Marc Secchia's other stories and his language use and rhythm of story telling is to me more complex than the Shioni, Shapeshifter, and other series/books... That being said, I throughly enjoyed it.
The first time I read it - and I am enjoying it even more the second (more slower) time around - I was at first distracted by the complex word play in the dialogue between Zaranna and her family - they like to play with words - a lot. But... once I fell into the rhythm of the story I found that I enjoyed it and laughed quite often at some of the more creative phrases.
Mr Secchia and his daughter have created a wonderful plot and magical world together. Well done!
Looking forward to reading the continuation of this story.
