Truly a magical book. The detail in every page keeps you reading until you realize you’ve been reading for hours. I love fantasy so this book definitely caught my attention. The story of it all really takes you by the heart strings as it explains piper’s past. It’s pretty funny to imagine the parts of anna blabbering on and on at points in the book. And since throughout the book piper seems pretty bull-headed, pretty hot-headed too to be honest. I read over so many of her lines multiple times beause she had such a harsh way of saying things sometimes that i had to just imagine how she said it. It’s kind of a weird thing i do. Whenever some character yells or strongly uses some kind of emotion really harshly, i will stop right then and there and read over it over and over untill i think I’ve nailed how i think it should sound. I don’t know why i just always seem to do it. It really brings out the emotion and makes the book seem a bit more realistic when they do small parts like that. Now I’m not saying they should have put nearly half the book in outbursts with characters like that (Although it would be kind of funny to imagine) it’s those kinds of books that discuss serious matters like being an orphan with no parents to care for you. Or barely having any money and having to resort to nearly getting yourself hurt just to afford to eat and get money. Although the main characters are a bit underaged they definitely seem to act older than they really are. And that is why i rate this magical and incredible book 5 stars.
