I think the author did a good jobe with this book, but that it was too childlike for me, which is why i didn’t continue reading the book. The author wrote a good book, simple and with magic as well as magical creatures, and fantasy and mysteries.
But even if it might sound like a good book, I didn’t enjoy it that much. I thought is was boring and way to predictable, and maybe a little too magical, fairy tales for me. Maybe if I had kept reading more I would have finally gotten interested in the plot, but it was just not catching on to me well enough.
