Fantasy fiction is a genre I am quite fond of. The ability for a magical narration to take me, the reader into a magical world full of magical creatures is… magical! It really helps the notion that a reason why I read books is to escape from the world of reality. With any book, the reasons to pick it are initially limited to the cover art and the blurb. When both are interesting, it makes it easier to pick it for reading. This book fell into such a category.
