"Zaria is both vulnerable and strong, and very much a role model for my own daughters." - APinFL, Audible Review
From the Author
I love to play board games and I love challenges, so naturally I had to combine the two in this book. It was great fun to invent Kettupeli (fox game). It was inspired by an article that I read discussing how archaeologists would find pieces to aViking game, but lacking any other context clues they had no idea how it was played.
I decided to turn it into a deceptively casual game, with a strategy driven core. The pieces became little standing foxes. The board circular. This was to play off the visual of both chess and Chinese checkers.
The fey kept it alive in the heart of Niffleheim, long after the Vikings. It was a game of politics and friendship. It could be used to pick apart how devious your opponent was, or how trustworthy, or how capable, or how distracted, and so much more.
Instructions on How to Make Your Own:I made a tutorial video on building your own copy of Kettupeli. You can find it on my website or on YouTube.

This book expands the universe Keira Gillett has created beyond the city and forest of the first book; not only geographically but also in mythos. New creatures and cultures are introduced, even character introspection teases and builds suspense for the reader; there is no lull in action or motivation. It is clear that the age of the main characters plays into their roles. None of the kids are experts and they often make mistakes or regret their decisions; It is clear that, though potential exists, none of the characters is perfect. These highly relatable and realistic character traits are excellent for readers of the same age and nostalgic for adults. There is a twist ending that I didn't see coming and I hope will propel the plot into the next book.
Words and concepts are perfect for adolescent readers, ages 12 & up, similarly to the first book. That said, I fully enjoyed it as an adult reader.
I highly recommend this series and this author for adolescent and adult readers alike. I look forward to following Zaria and her friends on their adventures; I just hope I bring "the right shoes".
It's fun to read a modern-day fairy tale. Gillett writes with the fine-tuned sensitivity of an artist. Her descriptions and dialogue invite you quickly and easily to identify with the characters-- then sweep you along on their adventures. And the illustrations are superb. Can't wait for Zaria III
Was surprised that Zaria didn't confide her problem in any of her teammates.
Understand that she didn't want them to think that she was crazy but it's fantasy with all kinds of nonsensical beings around so why wouldn't they believe her? Really liked Madam Brown. Enjoyed the challenges with the fey people. Good story, liked it enough to purchase books three and four.
