**I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.**

I quite enjoyed this adventure story, and even bought the first box set (ebooks 1-3) so i can continue the story. This is book 1 of a 9 book series, and would not be considered a full and complete story on its own. The only issues i had are with the brattiness of the heroine and the fact that at 20(ish?) years old she's never kissed anyone? It just seems unrealistic and an easy way to avoid an awkward scenario w/ her love interest and guardian Jens. Maybe that's me though, i'm over the main girl having to be "pure" and "inexperienced".

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book as Lucy goes from being in a world where she has lost her parents and twin brother and a life on the move to an alternate world where there are Weres, Dwarfs, Elves and more. I laughed out loud, and felt her pain as her entire world shifted. This was a fun read with lots of excitement and revelations in each chapter. The characters are funny, sad, emotional, loving and more. Can't wait to see what happens next, how could I with the way this first book ends. The series looks promising if the next book is as good as the first. Nicely done! ( )

Purely amazing! I can't say enough how much I enjoyed reading this story. Lucy is so spunky and the interactions between her and Jen are priceless. I love when authors use different folklore in their stories. I have never read a story with Scandinavian Folklore and it was a real treat to see it being used in Undraland. Overall, I give Undraland five stars! I only wish I could give it more. I recommend this book and this author. I will be reading more from her and the next book in this story, Nokken.

I am sorry to say that I will have to rate this book low. I received this book through the librarything.com monthly contest. It was a good story but It didn't include the ending as I would have have to purchase it. I have never come across this through librarything.com. ( )
