"If you are a fan of Harry Potter and Artemis Fowl, this book may be a good choice for you. It is about a boy apprenticed to a magician, who longs to be more than his master thinks he is. Witty, cute, and easy to read. It's the first in a trilogy, I'm starting book 2 now."
"The writing style was a bit convoluted, but once you get used to it, it gives it a very real sense of being in the author's thoughts. Poignant and witty, it provides a realistic insight into so many childhoods from that era."
"The second book in the Artemis Fowl series, it was a quick read, very entertaining. The same characters that we saw in the first book, with a few new faces, and an entirely new evil plot by the now-13-year-old criminal mastermind. Very good for a quick and easy read."
"I am really thrilled with this start to the Farseer trilogy. I read the book in one day, could NOT put it down! It is richly detailed, well written, and very touching. I can't wait to read the next two!"
"This story seemed hollow and a little pathetic to me. While the cattiness of the girls was quite familiar to my own adolescence, the 'climax' of the book simply did not ring true. The ending also left much to be desired. It wasn't much of a story, and it was not told by much of a storyteller. Disappointing."
"Vampire Bill gets kidnapped, and it's up to Sookie to rescue him. Weres, shifters, and vampires... this book is exciting and a quick read. I read it all in one day and dove immediately into the next in the series!"
"Amazingly well written. Easy to understand, with not just step-by-step instructions or 'the how of it', it also gives you 'the why of it' in terms that are easy for the layperson to comprehend. This book is a keeper!"
