Evie Pomeroy dreams of being a physician, like her parents had been. A royal scholarship gives her her chance, and she sets out to the university accompanied by the boy next door. But bandits, shipwreck, a mysterious creature, and even the tug of friendship may tear from her what matters most. YA fantasy for teens and tweens.
Reviews PlateI was ecstatic when I received Bloomsbury’s invitation to participate in a Book Tour for this new release. This unique fantasy read is about a young girl that finds herself with a companion that she would have never imagined. Soon after she finds herself and her companion on a journey that could cost her her life. I was impressed by this story line from the moment I read the description. A new turn in the current trends of this genre, I found this to be a breath of fresh air. My concern was raised early on due to the effort I was exerting trying to stay focused on this story. It seemed to be starting slower than I tend to like, but my faith was surely restored. Once the story began to unfold the pace anticipating picked up bringing forth a incredibly entertaining read. Being an old fashioned girl myself, I always enjoy a good book with an old fashioned heritage. Along with the Fantasy attributes it also includes a simple and sweet love story that will keep you guessing throughout the story. If you are looking for a diamond in the ruff you will find that here.
