  1. I really enjoyed this book! I thought the characters were interesting and I liked how Jinx wasn’t the ‘perfect boy.’ At times it got a little confusing, but overall it was a very good read! It may be a contender.

  2. In the start, time flowed differently in a hard way to follow making the beginning a bit confusing. Character: I liked how the author portrayed the characters with flaws, since in some books, the protagonist is flawless and perfect. I don’t really think the characters developed though. Plot wasn’t too original; boy goes to evil wizard even though he was told not to. My favorite part was the setting, the dark forest filled with creatures. The first part of the story gives a creepy feeling about the Urwald. So I would say a fun read, but it’s not distinguished.
