Th Warble Review and Giveaway



Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in. But when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals and the evil Queen Sentiz.

In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she’s honored as “the chosen one” the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz’s control. But it’s not as simple as it seems. To save Bernovem, she must place the gift she was given, the famous " Warble,” in its final resting place. And she must travel through the deep forest, climb a treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen’s “zelbocks” before she reaches her destination. Guided by her new fairy friends, Clover and Looper and by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, as well as an assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey that not only tests her strength but her heart.

My Review

This book was magical. Unpopular odd duckling out Kristina gets a very special gift from her favorite teacher at holiday break. The adventure takes off from there and it's a fantastical ride from beginning to end. An evil queen, fairies, gnomes and a quest to return the land of Bernovem back to it's rightful rulers draw you in and keep you reading till the wee hours. I really connected with the main character kristina. All the characters were so well developed that you just find yourself completely lost in the story and rooting for the heroes. It ties up rather nicely at the end but still leaves a  window open for book two.
