Editorial Reviews

Review

"As intricate and sparkling as the magical spells [it] describes . . . Clark has crafted one of those special books that only comes around every so often, a delicately balanced fantasy and coming-of-age novel that will resonate with adults and children alike. A must-purchase . . . This philosophical fantasy is an absolute revelation for an adolescent child yearning for adventure and knowing oneself. School Library Journal (starred review)
 
“Features Melanie’s first romantic crush, a motley crew of magical beings, a fair amount of deception, and a startlingly deep contemplation on what being alive means. In fact, this novel offers remarkable morsels of philosophical perspectives while maintaining its swift pace, as the characters live through events that challenge their assumptions about violence, morality, and mortality. Long after Melanie and Traveler, both worthy protagonists, have faded from memory, those ethical questions may still percolate with young readers.” BCCB (starred review)

"An epic tapestry threaded with rich lore, vibrant characters, and a twisting plot that will have readers tumbling through the pages. Marrying the zany inventiveness of Alice in Wonderland with the thorough magical world-building of Howl’s Moving Castle, Clark creates a deeply immersive fantasy, full of both heft and humor, that’s sure to stay with young readers long after its final page is turned." —Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of The School for Good and Evil series

"Zack Loran Clark has spun a new classic. Perfect next read for fans of timeless favorites by Ursula LeGuin and Diana Wynne Jones." —Eliot Schrefer, two-time National Book Award finalist and author of The Lost Rainforest series

About the Author
