Sixteen-year-old Maddy Bride starts at a new school in the countryside. She knows she’ll have to deal with sports obsessed rich kids, cliques, and pressure. She doesn’t expect myths from the shadowy past to be taking place around her. Not only are the legends unfinished. They’re starting all over again.
Her new classmate, Eddy Moon, is awkward, and shy, and has lived a life of hardship and loneliness. As his strength and sense of purpose become more and more striking, Maddy comes to believe that he may have a place in the stories. At the same time she realizes that the place she wants is by his side.
Closeness to Eddy brings Maddy another shocking realization. Not only is he a mythic hero returned to life in the countryside, but maybe she too has a place in the legends. Torn between normality and her attraction to the magnificent Eddy Moon, Maddy has to decide who she is, who she is going to be, and whether stories must end the same way twice.
Well let me see, for this book as a fantasy genre I would say that fantasy was there. But for me it was not so much the fantasy but more of a coming of age. What do I mean you may ask. Well without giving away any more than the Synopsis does, Maddy was learning her own place in life. As like the synopsis say's, she is torn.
In 312 pages I would like to have seen more character building as well as a little more fantasy building. But that is me. You may enjoy it. So please feel free to check it out yourself.
So for the above reasons I will be giving this book a Breath of Life Rating:
Three Clock Rating!
