What follows is a Wizard of Oz type quest through Los Lagos and a number of obstacles which Alex must face to get to and free her family. A fascinating set of characters has been created, and I don't want to give it away, but it's an incredible world! It combines mythologies into an all new creation. It's fascinating and amazing. There are some scary parts- it's a riveting adventure! The book is fast paced.
Alex learns about herself and comes into her own with each step along the journey. Her personal growth during the book is quite large. Overall, I really loved the unique story and cast of characters! Beautifully done.
Please note that I received this book from the publisher through netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
