  1. I absolutely freaking adore this book!!!!! I read it a while ago and it still makes me excited to talk about. I would love if this book got an honor award. I feel like this book had a fresh take on fantasy and was able to incorporate modern things into it. For example Fin says “sit down woman, I’m trying to protect you” or something along those lines, and I’m sure that’s only something you would hear in the modern world, but it seemed right. I really liked the plot line, and just the whole book. Very well done, I greatly enjoyed it, and look forward to more books by this author.
