    "Thrilling, suspenseful, adventurous. I was so glad I found this book that was out of print it feels like somewhat of a cult classic. It's one of those books you aren't sure about at first but when you get going you don't want to stop. From front to back this book had me coming back for more hoping to see what was going to happen next in this wondrous tale of bravery and heroism. "

    "One of those oldie but a goodie type of book. I read the entire thing in 4 days but when i got to the ending i was very upset at how it ended. I mean it could of definitely been worse but it gave me hopes for a great ending . Just that it did not deliver, so i would definitely recommend this if you do not mind the sub-par ending. "
