I was very engrossed in this book. Pocock’s fantasy world is immersive, and the cast of characters are excellent. The two main protagonists are both on the cusp of adulthood, beginning to understand what their life has in store for them. Both Seth and Miriam are on a quest for truth and loyalty. The philosophies and limitations of their childhood are being tested, and both question their parent’s wisdom. As the realities of both worlds are at the brink of potential ruin, they are pitted against not just their families, but each other. The excitement increased the more I turned the pages, and I read this one through quickly and eagerly. Any fans of Fantasy or YA will be enthralled. If this is not your normal genre, I would encourage you to give it a go. You won’t be sorry.
