Readers of this book are immersed in the world of Brunhild Tower, which is both enchanting and spooky. The setting, along with a bit of mystery, adventure, and suspense, make it a page-turner. Colm, Mal, and Tamika are all true-to-life characters. The sibling relationship between Colm and Mal, whose personalities are very different, was interesting and realistic. Other characters, such as the princess and the professor, were quirky enough to add intrigue to the story.
This is a captivating fantasy for readers who like to be transported to magical and mysterious worlds.
