This is a fun, short middle grade! It was a bit short so the plot felt a little underwhelming but it was mostly interesting and the world was really intriguing. I will definitely continue with the series. I‘m also intrigued as as each book in the series is by a different author!
While the concept of this book is interesting, I wasn‘t overly impressed with some of the turns the story took. The story is told through alternating POV chapters between 4 different characters. While I don‘t mind this type of setup, 4 POVs seemed like a bit of overkill, especially with all of the world-building from the ground up necessary. The action scenes are well-written, making me wish there was more fighting going on in the plot.
It was alright: by no means as good as Fablehaven. I wish this were targeted towards the adult audience, cause it could be taken into much more deep territory and a bit more interesting as far as content. I adore the summoning of the spirit animals and their personalities, and how they enhance abilities, I just wish it were tailored for a different audience. Might not finish the series.
