I read an interesting new book, The Key of Kilenya by Andrea Pearson. It's a fantasy aimed at middle grade readers. Pearson has a vivid imagination and this is one of the first truly unique fantasies I've read in quite sometime. The world she imagined as well as the inhabitants of that world were all fresh and interesting. It also had strong characters to appeal to boys, which is a good thing since they tend not to read as much as girls (yes, I know there are exceptions).
If you like this genre, you might want to check it out. I will say that it was a bit long for me. There were parts that I thought could have been condensed or cut out altogether. But that aside, it was an interesting book and a good way to spend some relaxing hours.
You can find out more about this book at this link. It's in both ebook as well as traditional printed forms.
