I enjoyed this book just as much as I did when I read it for the first time a few years ago. This is definitely more a middle grade novel, but that made it no less enjoyable. Definitely going to continue to re-read the rest of the series! ( )

I read this when I was a kid and wondered how it would hold up now that I'm older. I still love it. It's still brilliant ( )

Thus far, I have minimal motivation to really get into this book. It's starting very slowly and usurping many outmoded (i.e. racist) Native American stereotypes for the fake society in this book.

Update: This book took a LONG time to get started. It wasn't until Renn and Torak leave the village that things become endurable and at that point things start becoming far better than the beginning. The obnoxious stylization of fake Native American speak ("fast water" as the word for river and likewise) never becomes anything less than insulting and really ruined the voice of the story for me. That being said, for such a cliche on the "chosen one" trope, the story itself isn't too bad. ( )

I love this series! I have read them all but I have to say they are absolutely marvellous 💕 Such a heart warmingly sweet, adventurous and action packed book! I could cry
