What we have here is nature magic at its best. Though it is not as one would take the magic but in the idea of the responsibility with this magic. I would have given this story a five star review but for me the pacing was a bit slow, not enough to affect the story but for me I would have loved a bit more action.
This is not to say that the story lacks in action. It most certainly does not. Though when you get to the top of the mountain and see where you came from and what is to come. There is a sudden rush of joy as everything that has brought you to this point is reaching the perfect storm for the imagination.
I would definitely recommend this work for anyone looking for a break from the traditional "I am a wizard here is my wand and my magic." stuff. The magic used in this work definitely hits a point in myself and would with anyone who has researched or is a follower of nature magic.
The story is intriguing. Taking place somewhere in the near future where the world has gone slightly topsy turvy (trout are land animals) and magic exists, it reads like a hybrid of a fairytale and a survivalist dystopian tale. The heroes are easy to like and the villains are appropriately nasty, but there is a depth to each that is explored well.
I will admit that there were moments that had me sniffling and wiping tears. While most of the story is light, there are some heavily emotional scenes. A definite must read for fans of all types of fantasy, not just YA.
I admit that I'm far from the target age audience for this series. But I do read YA books that have kept my interest throughout. Sorry to say, this one didn't peak my interest much until the very last part of the book. And then I ended up a little sad when one of the key characters met their fate. The pacing during most of the book was slow. And the back history of how and why this World changed so drastically was never explained--just that now fish are ground dwellers and butterflies swim in the waters. Additionally, the young Heroine seemed rather inept.
Not for me, and I doubt that I will continue the series. But for the target YA reader, I'm sure that it would be a decent, clean read.
As others have written, Marnie has a unique flair for igniting our imaginations with all forms of sensory stimulation….from comforting smells to mind-numbing colors and textures. I can almost imagine the characters coming to life on screen. I know I shouldn’t compare to Harry Potter films, but I can see these on film as well, only brighter somehow.
New worlds come to life in her books, but more than that, I feel that her characters have real heart. One can feel the love that the main characters have for each other, but also the heartache and self-doubt that comes from young pain.
Lessons learned in Cate’s fantasy world are equally suited to the rest of us earth people. Of course, there is plenty of suspense to keep the pages turning, even if you’re well past your teens (in my case, very well past!)
