My Thoughts - Story
Ms. Marillier always has such a talent at building such a fantastical world with amazing creatures and perfectly developed characters. Like take for instance…Liobhan and Dau – the way that they start out as competitors/enemies but their relationship doesn’t bloom overnight…it builds slowly throughout the book where lessons are learned and growing up is done.

Liobhan and Brocc are brother and sister (not by blood) and they along with Dau are part of the training island of Swan Island. Liobhan and Brocc are also entertainers. They are chosen to go along on a mission to find out what happened to the stolen Harp of Kings.

This is their adventure on finding out who has it and trying to weave through so many obstacles magical and non-magical – This is how they mature, learn lessons, and grow closer together.

I’m not going to go into the story because I wouldn’t be able to do it justice.
