    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/ Sage Blackwood is definitely an author at the top of her game as she gives us yet another intriguing children's fantasy, this time a stand alone. And although middle grade is likely the target audience, the themes and nuance...

    I'm torn about this one. I liked the voice a lot initially: it's very literal and direct and funny. And then it crosses the line to overly self-aware and stops working for me. "It seems to me," said Miss Flivvers, who had been in a sour mood, "that once you're up on a pedestal, you can't take a step...

Although she speaks her mind, Chantel is a great role model. She overcomes obsta...

    This was a fun MG fantasy novel. Lightning was the best thing about this story, but I like dragons and stories involving dragons. I also liked the MC, Chantel; she was smart and spunky. I also liked Anna and Franklin. The three of them balanced each other out. I liked and was surprised by the ending...

    I really enjoyed Chantel, the spirited main character in this fantasy story. When the headmistress from her school goes missing and a series of other disappearances occur around the city, Chantel is determined to get answers. She is not going to stay out of the way as she is told....

    Oh boy did I enjoy this! Magic and a sassy heroine destined to be a powerful leader and have more magic in her than she'd imagined. I thought this was a great adventure and I think what I liked most (aside from the DRAGON) was when Chantel was feisty and not a "biddable" and meek girl. I thought the...

    I thought this was a nice read. The main character was quite likable. I enjoyed the adventure they were on. The only thing I didn't like was the snake in the ear and head. I thought that was a little creepy....
