This was a good fantasy YA novel, which I really enjoyed. I liked how the chapters alternated between best friends Veronica and MacKenna, it was really cool to see both of their perspectives, I found myself relating to both of them in different ways. I think my favorite character was Duncan, he was just so sweet, protective, and completely swoon-worthy, he had a great ability to make me laugh yet he knew when to be serious too (He reminded me greatly of Luca Forelli from The River Of Time) I liked Jamie too, at the end if the book but for most if it he just really annoyed me! I also loved the secondary characters Fergus and Fiona, their sub-plot romance was so sweet too!
Doon was an absolutely beautiful place, I loved all the descriptions if the landscape as well as the castle. I also really appreciated that it was made very clear that the "Magic" was actually God's will triumphing over Satan. There were some things that I would preferred to have not been there but they didn't really affect my overall enjoyment of the story. I think that people who enjoy mainstream YA novels would especially like this book, and I recommend it to all my fellow fans of the River of Time Series by Lisa T. Bergren
I will probably read the rest of the series at some point!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the BookLook bloggers review program in exchange for my honest review, which I have done. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
