middlegrade type fantasy novel If you enjoy these types of books, I reccomend you check it out Look for this book wherever books are sold I was pleasantly surprised by Flame in the Mist, which I decided to read solely based on the the names of the two golden rats I had pet gerbils called Pudding and Pie when I was a kid, so it s not surprising that I found Noodle and Pie endearing They prove to be excellent companions for Jemma The story is compelling, with a well paced plot, and nicely polished writing The lack of awkward sentences or unrealistic dialog is rare in a debut novel, Ms

predictable or cliche, but that s probably due to the embarrassing number of fantasy novels I have read and my high expectations which were mostly met in this book I would recommend this book to middle grade or older readers who like fantasy stories with a dark twist If you liked this book, you might also enjoy Plain Kate Blackbringer Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH Okay someone has to be

of creativity to redeem it This novel has a bit of a dark theme, but it is handled so well that it would be perfectly appropriate for the younger end of the YA market as well as the older I m 31 and I smiled all the way through it One of the things that I found engaging about this book, is that the evil is relentless The presence of the dark forces at work in this novel are always there, lingering just below the surface This built up suspense and made for a wonderful pace to this story Along with a lot of creative and original descriptions, excellent character names and some fantasy appropriate humor, the dialogue in this novel is superior to that of many other authors in this genre I love fantasy because it takes you away from reality and transports you to somewhere else This book does just that It enabled me to leave my worries behind and just have a really good time Honestly, this is the kind of fantasy that made me want to read fantasy in the first place Loved it and can t wait to see what is next This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher I got this one to blurb and it s a tonnn of fun Kind of like the Addams Family mixed with high fantasy and a dash of Frankenstein
