This book is amazing! I love the glimpses the audience gets of an unfamiliar culture. However, what I most enjoy about this book is the main character. Harry is strong yet emotional, and naive yet clever. Simply put, Harry Crewe is one of the very few female protagonists in the Fantasy genre that I adore, let alone find compelling. I would recommend this book to Fantasy lovers as well as Young Adult readers.
