Jorun is a typical teenage girl in many ways. She strains against the boundaries set on her by her parents and feels alive when she is in the secret tunnels with her friends. Only her small group knows about the tunnels and she will spend every night there with her group, especially Torgny. When a stranger finds his way into the hidden underground maze, his story of airships that destroyed his island is hard to believe. When the ships come to her home, everything will change. Wondering if Torgny favors her and fighting with her annoying younger sister are now the least important things in her life. What will she do to save her home?
I enjoyed this novel.The author does a great job creating vivid characters and a world that is picturesque and easy to imagine. From the first paragraph my attention was grabbed and i had no trouble reading this book in one sitting. It did not have any slow spots, though the ending left me wanting. Jorun is an admirable character. She is a strong young woman and I only wish there was more to read about her.
4 out of 5 stars
