Disclaimer, this book is aimed at middle school and I am an adult. This review, then, is really geared toward adults.
I had heard how wonderful this book was and heard phrases like "the next Harry Potter".
It isn't. Well it might reach the same level of commercial success, but it is not of the same quality as the Potter books. I think it might even be unfair to this book to make the comparison.
It is actually a very good book. it doesn't have the depth or the well developed characters of Potter, but it is a good read with humor and adventure a plenty. The characters are likeable (or despicable in the case of the villians) but without much depth.
My only read complaint is that Morrigan is supposed to be eleven years old but comes off as much older. It makes the occasional really poor child-like decisions she makes jarring. It really is a minor enough quibble.
I did enjoy the book, even as an adult, and will very likely read the next.
Great story, very sweet. For the whole family. I am very excited for the next book!
