Thoughts: I found this book to be alright but just a bit slow moving. The whole thing was very detailed in it's descriptions of surroundings as well as the way the characters looked. There for a bit there seemed to be a love story going on but nothing became of it so I really didn't see a need for it in the story. My only other problem with this book was that the ending was a bit confusing and I still don't understand what happened to the evil that was taking over. With everything said I found this book to be a pretty decent middle grade book.
