My sister first told me about this book when, she was reading the second book, Princess of Glass, at Olive Garden with our family.
I got the book at my school library at lunch time and then, finished
it at about 5 o'clock at night.
When I finished the book, I felt like crying. Because, the book was accusually over and it was SUCH a good book!
It is toatally my favorite book in the world. Jessica Day George really did a fantastic job with this book. :)
