If Fer fails, she will lose her land and the realm will be closed to her forever.
Sarah Prineas combines a brave and resourceful young heroine with a richly detailed fantasy world and beloved folklore into a story that will delight middle-grade fans of Diana Wynne Jones, Ingrid Law, and Rick Riordan.
In Summerkin, Fer faces a whole bunch of other obstacles that threaten her land and people. Although Fer has defeated the Mor, there are still some who do not believe that she is the true Lady. To prove herself Fer must enter a competition that will determine if Fer is the true Lady. She will meet many people who will get in her way.
This book is humorous, fun and heart felt. I really liked how you get to learn a life lesson (if you have read some of my other reviews, you probably know that I find life lessons in almost everything). The life lesson is "always be yourself." You also get to learn about friendship. (something Rook still has to figure out!)
This book also has a great plot, I cant wait for the next book!
My book rating: *****meg-a-stars
