This book is a very good fantasy novel that really gets you into the story. The sequence of events and the general story is really good and I enjoyed reading it. ( )

This book is by the fabulous author Emily Rodda, and was copyrighted in 1994. It was the first publiished in 1994 too. This book is about rowan and his friends having some good and bad news. The good news was the travellers were coming, and the bad news was that one of rowan's friends Zeel was very ill.
When I thought about the book, i was overwhelmed, excited about what was going to happen next.
