I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Although obviously written for children, it was well-imagined and well-plotted. The world created by the author is consistent - there were no major gaps in logic that kicked me out of the story. The characters were a little obvious, with the bad guys being suitably evil and the good guys being pretty much instantly likeable, but I enjoyed Emily's struggles to understand the events around her and to choose between her heart's desire and the moral high road. The twist at the end was a lot of fun and sets up the next book. I expect I'll read it, too.

I will listen to almost anything that Katherine Kellgren reads. She is wonderful! I hear the voice and can clearly imagine the character. This story beginning reminded me of Jane Eyre or Oliver Twist character. Then the magic happens! Are they good or are they evil? Who can you trust?
I think this story might be too scary for a child under the age of 8 because it does deal with abandonment of parents and some scary creatures.
