review 1: I wanted to like this more than I did, but it comes off as kind of a poor man's Dark is Rising to me, and that's a shame. Partly I didn't like it more because I found the protagonist pretty annoying, but there were also some mythological bits that made me go "huh?", maybe because I'm less informed than I think I am, but anyway, some things didn't feel right to me. That said, it's very exciting, there is some good use of British mythology (mostly but not entirely Celtic), and I probably will have to read the next book!
review 2: I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. I love this story. I can't wait until my son is old enough to read this. The main character Timothy is a true hero. I love him. He is so sweet and so caring and so brave.
... more The way he fights for his family and for a friend who is not really a friend is inspiring. He is faced with a great responsibility and he steps up to the plate because he knows that it's the right thing to do. Love it. Can't wait to read the rest of the story. less
