I did like this book. I have to give it to her, Melina Marchetta is great at writing wonderful, in depth characters. There is a lot of info dumb in the beginning of the book, and Evanjalin did annoy me with her meddling ways. But I enjoyed the concept of the Lumatere people in exile, there are a lot...

First things first. One thing i know after reading this book is the desperate need to have more ginger heroes. I mean look at them bumps. LOOK AT THEM!!!

Sometimes I'm a little slow on the uptake. In my defence, I hear about so many books. Here's the thing, I'd read Marchetta's Jellicoe Road and adored it. It shook me up in all the best ways.

”You asked me once what my magic was.That is my magic.” I am now convinced Melina Marchetta is made of equal parts freshly-baked cookies, clean laundry, pixie dust and waffles. Something about her books just comforts me in ways I cannot attempt to capture into words. Her oeuvre covers themes that in...

It started very slow. I actually put it down a while ago and started over. I just kept coming back to this book since the reviews were so high and gushy. I understand why now. The second half and ending of this book was outstanding!
