• I really enjoyed this book. It reminded me of a series of books I read when I was a kid. It was struck by the issues brought up in the times and how progressive it was. – Kerry
• I loved the world building and journeys of the characters. There were points where I felt it could have been set during many periods in history and then others where it was of a very distinct period. The themes were really meaningful. – Danica
• OMG – I wish I had enough time to read this whole book. I really enjoyed the first 30%! The writing style was easy to read but sophisticated and it took me back in the past. The characters were so well developed. – Steph
• Although it was slow at times, some of the imagery & descriptive language was so lovely. I enjoyed being immersed in that world. Happy I finally read this. – Chelsea
