I love the budding love story mixed in with the evil that is happening around them, it gives the readers a hope to look forward to. I also love Elian's character!! Even though he grew up his first years of life in a terrible situation and life style he has still remained kind and compassionate. He is a genuine guy. There were a few twists I did not see coming which is always a good thing, keeps the reader into the book. This books just has an airy hopefully feeling to it as you read it. It was well written and different from other fantasy’s I have read.
