Age group: 11-15
Author: Soman Chainani
My opinion: I absolutely adore this book! It is a great example of terrific fantasy, the plot twisting and turning at every corner. Chainani did an amazing job at getting the reader hooked in the story, and I could barely put the book down. Without a doubt this is on of my favorite books to read, and I have reread it several times. At first glance this book might seem like any other story, but after taking away the surface, it is apparent that this book is a masterpiece of artwork, cleverly sculpted by an amazing and extremely talented writer. On the first page this compelling story catches your interest, and will lead you through a world entirely not your own. I love the world that Chainani has created!
This story is about two young girls, each others only friends who are whisked away to a place far away, where they are taught and trained to defeat one another in a fairytale happy ever after way - though only one will get to go home alive. To get home they must survive their own fairytale [and each other] long enough to realize who they really are inside. Its fantastic how much time and effort went into the other world, and is a great read!
I really suggest this book to anyone who likes reading fantasy. This is truly a magnificent book!
- Soman Chainani is a talented writer and I hope that he continues to share his talent with the world.
