Praise

Croggon’s humbly exquisite prose weaves splendor into everything, from spells of magery and the frightening, otherworldly realm that the protagonists must tread to the regular World’s aesthetic beauty and human emotion (grief, shame, terror, trauma)…Magnificent yet intimate, dark yet tender.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Fans of the Books of Pellinor quartet (The Crow, BCCB 01/08, etc.) will be elated to see that this prequel has made its way over from Australia, and readers starting the series here will likely be equally thrilled when they learn that a rich, lengthy series awaits them…Fans of high or epic fantasy will sink right in to this lushly described world, and they’ll appreciate the extra touches of maps, a pronunciation guide, and an informative author’s note.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

The atmosphere of the novel is J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth mixed with Tamora Pierce’s Tortall and a little of the Wizarding World of “Harry Potter” for good measure. Fantasy enthusiasts will find it satisfying to disappear into Croggon’s world. This book stands alone and is even more enjoyable in conjunction with the other “Pellinor” volumes. Recommended for any YA fantasy collection.
—School Library Journal

A must-read for fans of this high-fantasy series.
