I know that you mustn't judge a book by its cover but the cover of this book does give you a very good idea of what wonder and imagination you will read inside. It is a brilliant book, jam-packed with magic, adventure and excitement. I gobbled it up in one and a half days - it was very hard to put down! It moves at a very fast pace and almost every chapter ends with a cliff-hanger which makes it gripping and almost impossible not to want to read on. I liked the fact that it included a bad 'bad guy' and that it had some pretty spooky parts. I would definitely recommend this book to people who like fantasy and adventure stories.
