This book was awesome! Its writing is beautiful, and the imagery is perfect. The characters are all believable, and the protagonists have realistic problems in their lives instead of being perfect robots that manage to do everything right. The environment this book is in is simply wondrous and the feeling I got whilst I read it was exhilarating. I couldn’t put this book down, and I doubt you’ll be able to put it down too! I’d definitely give it a five out of five stars. This book would be great for teenagers and up!
