The book’s message is a worthy one: ‘It is no small thing, to have a gentle heart.’
School Library Journal
The peril always seems real, evoked fully as the author switches from Thorn’s to Brier’s to Celestyna’s to the Gulgot’s internal thoughts. . . . [An] edgy, intricate fantasy.
For all those who sit quietly, have a soft strength, and forge ahead to do what is right even though they are afraid, this is the story you’ve been waiting for.
The mission that Thorn and Briar embark on will keep you suspended on the edge of your seat with a few surprises that will pique any reader’s interest.
This is a story that’s equally heartwarming and heartbreaking (though the kind of heartbreak that pushes you to keep fighting), the sum of its parts undeniably magical.
Luscious writing and magical moments.
