I thought this book was exciting and unpredictable, and I liked it a lot. I liked this book because there were particular parts, like when Christian overheard Queen Olympia, that made me want to keep reading. My favorite part in this book is when Christian hugged Marigold and Ed watched through the telescope in the forest on the other side of the waterfall. I liked this part because the way the author described this scene; I was able to visualize Ed looking through the telescope with his jaw dropping. In this book, the character I disliked was Queen Olympia because she was like the witch or stepmother in most fairy tales, always trying to get rid of someone so they can get all the glory.
I would recommend this book because when I read it, the author made me want to keep reading. I wanted to know what would happen to Christian and Marigold. I would only recommend this book to readers past third grade who enjoy fantasy and adventure.
