It’s books like these that allow me to offer a solid example when defending, and recommending young adult fiction to adults. It may not satisfy the older portion of the age range who tend to like the popular dark fantasy or steampunk, but for those wanting a good mystery – this is just the book.
I guess the best endings are the ones that make you emotional in some way: mad, happy, sad. They should evoke an emotion so strong it lingers long after you’ve finished reading it. This book will not disappoint in that regard.
I was surprised to learn this is Ty Drago’s first foray into youth fiction. And a heck of a trip it is. Not only that, it’s the first in a projected series. Seeing as I read this in nearly one sitting, it’s a no-brainer that I will be waiting eagerly for the next release.
