First of all, I like to give a hand to the artist for the artful drawings in this book. It was amazing. I was looking forward to finish a chapter, as that meant a new drawing.
The author’s writing style is pretty good. I like it when he gives his characters different accents, it made it easier to picture them and it was a bit funny too. It gave the book a bit of humor. His characters are well developed. My favorite has to be Sarah, even though she did annoy me a bit, which I suspect was a part of author’s intention. I did have my negative thoughts about our main character, but that's mostly because I never tend to like any main characters.
It's a cute and funny story, it's an easy read (even though I used some time on it, I blame my studies). It has a lot of romance and action, something I personally appreciate. The romance is a bit awkward but very cute, just how romance should be, at least that's my opinion. Love should be awkward! The worlds he creates are interesting and entertaining. I would love to read more and keep exploring this worlds with the characters, but I have to admit that I'm glad I'm only exploring that worlds through their eyes, since I think I would have been pretty scared if I was there. Ha ha, I'm brave at heart, I promise.
I do recommend this book to people aged 12-17. But I'm 20 and still enjoyed reading it, so if you like fantasy, romance and a bit of action, I recommend you giving it a try. Chances are you will like it. Cheers.
I give it 4 cupcakes with glitter sprinkle!
