This was a wonderful fantasy series. I just loved the world Hoover created and can't wait to read more about it. The main character is strong, compassionate, and protective. The story was exciting and kept me captivated from beginning to end. It's the perfect story for any young reader who enjoys fantasy. I can't wait to read the next book and find out what adventure Hoover takes us on next.
Quote #1: "The green fog seemed to pull itself forward with finger-like tendrils, almost like a hound searching out a smell. It must have caught on to the man because all of the fingers pointed at him. The green stuff gathered and thickened, almost like a cat does when it’s about to pounce, and then pounce it did, completely covering the man. I could hear his screams as he was eaten by the mist."
Quote #3: “Go ahead and think I’m crazy if it makes you happy, but I saw what I saw. That wasn’t an atomic bomb or a nuclear bomb. It didn’t look right or act right, not like the pictures and movies I’ve seen. It acted intelligent, choosing its victims and pouncing on them. It was slow, like . . . like . . .” I just couldn’t find the words, but wasn’t sure if it was because of adrenaline, fear, or my stupid brain. Frustrated, I stood and spun. “It was like watching pollen movng in the wind, but it’s no kind of pollen I’ve ever seen. It followed me.”
Quote #7: I was a gargoyle. So not fair. Austin got to be a wolf. Natalia was a fairy, and Hanna, a Pegasus. I was a stone creature who squats on top of churches and looks mean and ugly.
~ About the author ~
Karen E. Hoover has loved the written word for as long as she can remember. Her favorite memory of her dad is the time he spent with Karen on his lap, telling her stories for hours on end. Her dad promised he would have Karen reading on her own by the time she was four years old … and he very nearly did. Karen took the gift of words her dad gave her and ran with it. Since then, she’s written two novels and reams of poetry. Her head is fairly popping with ideas, so she plans to write until she’s ninety-four or maybe even a hundred and four.
Inspiration is found everywhere, but Karen’s heart is fueled by her husband and two sons, the Rocky Mountains, her chronic addiction to pens and paper, and the smell of her laser printer in the morning.
