I really liked this book, because it combines fantasy, suspense and mysteries. I love how they figure stuff out along the way and they go on this big adventure. It requires some quick thinking and it is just the best story.

i really liked this book because it always kept you on the edge of the seat, whenever you think everything is OK it isn't. Some parts were a little predictable though, but it was still very shocking when it happened. I did get confused sometimes because of the old English but overall it was very good!

Cool Author Fact: ALLAN STRATTON started off his arts career as an actor, appearing at the Stratford Festival and countless theatres across the Canada!

the thing I liked about the book is that it was action packed, and something was always happening. The thing I didn't like about it is that some parts were confusing, so I didn't know what was happening. But overall it was a great book, and I suggest you read it if you haven't already.

The book was freaking me out because there was a necromancer with with evil beings and the Archduke with iron hands collects his dead wives clothes.

i agree with you Kathrine1234. it was hard to predict. i like the character, Hans, i like his personality. i will not comment too much on this book. i don't want to spoil the book for the readers that still have to read the book. read the book. it's amazing.

This book was absolutely astounding and witty! I admire the somewhat strong 12 year-old female character as she and her new friend, Hans, travel together on a journey to save her family. A twist on a regular fairytale, but still suspenseful and interesting. Definitely a great read for lovers of adventure!
