Tolkien meets Peter Pan. In this fanciful adventure with the sophistication of Jr. Tolkien but yet the whimsical properties of a children’s fantasy, Ms. Nystrom, delivers a beautiful mythological folklore for Iceland. The legends of Iceland we extremely well written and the perfect backdrop for the book.
James is a wonderful little boy and her characters, Syvok and Matt are excellent companions. They have a wonderful adventure that is sure to captivate the attention of all ages of audience.
Ms. Nystrom does a great job of elaborating on the personality of James, and the intelligence so that it fits well with the plot and story. I look forward to getting to know more about Syvok and Matt in the upcoming adventures.
The illustrations were excellent and created an ambiance that fit very well with the theme and flow of the book.
