What I Have to Say
This book was enjoyable, but it was one of those books that there's nothing really that sets it apart in my mind from all the other books I've read. It's just one of those books about a boy who thinks he's dull and ordinary and then finds out he needs to save the world. It's a great story, but there are tons of stories just the same on the market.
I'm not saying that it's not worth reading. I'm sure that some people will find something to peak their interest. They might like the faery type creatures that are featured or the way the magic works. As I said, it's a perfectly written and well crafted story. It just fell flat for me.
My thanks go to Harper Collins and Netgalley for providing me with this copy for review.
