Let me start by saying I'm not a writer, and I know that will come through very clearly in my attempt at this review.
I was lucky enough at Christmas time to win an advanced reading copy of this wonderful book. I devoured it page after page. This is not your typical "coming of age" story. There are lots of twists and turns and toads thrown in to keep you turning page after page.
Then as soon as I heard the book was here on Audible, I knew I had to have it. I love to reread books and listening to them is even better. I do a lot of driving and putting on a good story carries me so well from point A to point B and this audio book was no exception.
I'm not going to tell you what the story is about, who the characters are (you can get all that by reading the description and then reading the book), that's not what I want to do here. What I want to tell you is that this is a book that is full of characters you will come to care about and if you're like me, you'll become invested in what's going to happen to them next.
So no, this is not your typical story about a girl coming of age, a horse and a handsome man. Does it have those things? Yes, maybe, sort of. But it has toads and magic and eggs and dragons and a lot more things you really must read about yourself.
The narration by Abby Craden is spot on, I can't say I tried to picture the voices when I read my copy, but if I had, they'd have sounded like they do here. I highly recommend this story, it's a great read/listen.
If you've not read any of Julie's books before, what are you waiting for?

I like the turnborn coming to town and the verbal play between Scourge and Captain Ash to be great

I thought she read it wonderfully. I bought it on a "blind purchase" I knew nothing about it.I thought it turned-out to be well worth the time.
