I'll be honest, I've been sick of the young adult/ children's fantasy genre lately. It seems that everyone has been trying to create the next Harry Potter and all the plots run together. There's seems to be a lack of individuality. That's why I was so pleasently surprised by this book. Sure it has the orphan element. But this book reminds me why I like the fantasy genre so much. It's the perfect hero quest and it reminds me more of a David Eddings book. Perfect for the reader whose dying for that last Harry Potter book to come out and as enjoyable.
