This book is highly recommended for anyone who not only likes fantasy, but loves a great story.
Ms. Werlinger is a superb writer who never ceases to amaze me with her storytelling ways.
Heck, just read it.
This is as book that combines nearly all the things I like into one place - animals, magic, schools inside of forests, alternate history, queer characters, and DRAGONS! It was 100% appeal for me, and I loved how the story grows over the three books. At first, you could mistake this for a generic fantasy setting, but it's actually old Ireland during the European Dark Ages, and that came as a super welcome surprise for me.
Writing-wise, the book isn't as flowery with its language as some other fantasy books, but I think the plain writing style suits the tone perfectly. The characters are all well-drawn and easy to keep apart, even if you can't pronounce their names. The main character, Caymin aka Ash, is someone I relate to A LOT. She's raised by badgers, and coming into the world of humans is hard for her. She doesn't understand lying and deceit, she's blunt, and she's connected to her emotions. It's easy to draw a parallel between Caymin and an autistic girl, even if she isn't and it's magical circumstances that relate to her upbringing, but the parallel is there, and that made Caymin a very compelling character for me.
I HIGHLY recommend this series to fans of fantasy and nature. If you like magic and animals, and grew up dreaming of living in the woods with talking animals, you will love this book!
