Not my usual type of story but even so I really enjoyed it, I have really got into my reading this year and I think it is because all the books have been good.
The plot is about a woman who only see’s her brother once a year as he works for the king, then he goes missing so the king sends for Lyra.
They set of on a mystery looking for her brother and the king’s sister. Lyra develops her magic capabilities to help them on their voyage.
Action all the way through with some good characters and well written.
