What a great adventure! I loved Sexta and Marcus, they are so perfect for one another and are so funny when they are battling each other. They seem to butt heads a lot because are both strong willed and refuse to give up, and this makes for a really great story. I found myself finishing this book in one day, I just could not put it down I had to know what happened next. I highly recommend reading this if you love a great Fantasy adventure, its perfect!!
