An exciting prequel to the New York Times bestseller Swordbird.
At the time that Nancy Yi Fan published this, she was 12 years old-isn't that amazing? I love
that every element needed to make this story as great as it can be is in there. The suspense,
feeling and emotion are amazing, and the cover stands out on any bookshelf. The story itself
is unique-there are hardly any fiction books on animals like birds or related to dinosaurs like
this one. I thought the characters were unique-completely different from each other-and you
could clearly tell who was evil, sho was defenseless, and who was just a servant. I loved the
plot of this book-I had a problem putting it down, and I raced through it as fast as possible.
The description and setting were crystal clear and easy to visualize and see. You could really
relate to what happened to the story, and you could feel every emotion portrayed in this
book like you actually were in it.
