I enjoyed the world that was built in this story. Not only was it interesting but it captivated you from the very beginning. The adventure of the story was amazing. I live the searching fir secrets places, secrets rooms, secrets enemies, anything secrets was awesome to find. The action was dead on. As the reader, you sucked into the world and into the characters shoes. Aoife grew right before your eyes. She got strong with each task that is put upon her. I admired her strength and willingness to save her family.Great book. I would love to live in this kind of world!!
