Summary: Multiple narrative with strong female characters – Zelie fights to bring back magic to her people. This is a fast paced exciting read! If you like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games – this is for you.

Age recommendation and challenging content: It’s suitable for Year 7+. There’s no offensive language- the ideas about segregation are powerful in the same way as the Muggles/Non-Muggles are in Harry Potter.

Notable reasons for recommending this book: Some great passages in it for description and action. A great book to read for pleasure.
