Story: This story is loosely based on a girl that lived five centuries ago or so. She was born blind. Her entire village thought she was a curse to them. That her being born blind was a curse. They thought her grandfather was cursed too because they considered him a giant. I really found this story very enjoyable. I think the only thing that would have made this book better would have been to have illustrations sprinkled throughout the book.
Characters: I really just adored Kaikos. She’s a very unique character. There were times I was really frustrated with her thought process. Then I had to remind myself that this is a time long ago and they didn’t think the way we think now. I loved her mother and a few of the guards as well. They did everything they could to protect the girl and make sure that nothing bad happened to her.
Critiques: None that I can think of right now.
Final Thoughts: I was really hesitant about this book when I first started it. I thought it would be on the dull or bland side. That’s mean. I don’t mean it to be mean. At least I was wrong. This is far from boring. The characters and the story are very complex and exciting to read. I fully recommend it to anybody who likes reading historical type stories.
