I could have used a little more set up at the beginning, but middle grade readers will not mind the lack of build up as much as I did. I really wanted to know more about Zuzu and hope that she is able to join Kiran on an adventure!
This is an excellent fantasy adventure that I will be definitely purchasing for my school library. It will be great for readers who loved Armstrong's Loki's Wolves, Ursu's Chronus Chronicles, McCaughrean's retelling of Greek myths, and Lough's Fire Wish. This is not part of the new Rick Riordan Presents imprint from Disney Hyperion, but it's great to see Scholastic embracing a similar style of #ownvoices fantasy!
