Mistmantle Chronicles #01: Urchin of the Riding Stars by M I Mcallister
Mistmantle Chronicles #01: Urchin of the Riding Stars

janfrom france, April 5, 2007

My 11-year-old daughter and I both enjoyed this book. The characters are well drawn, with depth, and resist the evil-doers with the help of a wise priest. Calling on the powers of good (do I dare say God ?) and not just on characters' heroism, is an element too often missing in fantasy stories ! In this sense it rejoins the work of Lucy Boston or Madeleine L'Engle, among our favorites. We look forward to reading the next volume.
