Sometimes I dabble in books aimed at a younger audience to keep things interesting. This particular book is small, action-packed at aimed at an audience of young kids with stars of adventure in their eyes and a fondness for quirky people and a few big words.
The status quo has been disturbed and an unknown enemy has been released into an approaching night. The plot is simple, the characters minimal and world building enough to keep the interest of children. The ‘moral’ of the story is simple but profound. Older teens might roll their eyes at the underlying message but I liked the basic simplicity in it.
This was a light, refreshing read which I picked up at an appropriate time.
P.S: There is magic, associated magical creatures and a crucial quest in this book.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
