Review:

"I thought my 10-year-old daughter would love this (which she did), but I was surprised to find I was as spellbound as she. Iona Fay is an ordinary girl who, with an unwielding fixation on her goal, summons an inner strength that was there all along. Those traits, determination and inner strength, are traits we would all wish for our children. Ultimately, this story was not only entertaining and magical but also a positive influence. I definitely recommend you read it with your child." Melanie Coughlin, former columnist at The Pilot newspaper "An impressive piece of writing to empower young women. It's so important to give young women a role model no matter how mythological. I mean enough of the kings, soldiers, and prince charmings. Kudos to Ms. Powers a writer in my own community making great reads." - Gabrielle Studenmundon, former editor at Self magazine "My 12-year-old daughter read this twice in one week." - Jaclyn Broussard "I bought this book for my daughters (ages 10 and 12), and they each read it in about two days--couldn't put it down! My older daughter loved it because it has mystery and adventure. My younger daughter says it's one of her favorite books and she can't wait for the second one. Both have said it's unique and captured their attention fully (something that's hard to do for them!) We will definitely be buying the next book." - Caryn Bruff
