Baba Yaga, Harpies, and other creatures find their way into these pages, as well as the dreaded Lamia.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Theo wants to fly. When his friend creates a pair of wings, Theo is all for testing them out. However, they fail, and unknown to them, Theo’s sister has tagged along. When she is kidnapped and taken through a portal, Theo must go on the ultimate quest to save her.

Full of mystery and intrigue, this is a wonderful YA fantasy. There are plenty of mystical beasts ranging from witches to dragons to nymphs. I loved the character growth that we see in this story as well. While Theo tries to not only get a grip on his new powers, he has to overcome the doubts in his head and turn his worries into confidence.
