This book was a bit hard to follow because so many of the names were made up. It did have a map of the kingdom yet it was still confusing when the author would throw in a made-up name as if it was a typical word that didn't need explaining. The vocabulary was very advanced which made it challenging to understand what was happening too. I was having trouble following everything so I stopped both times I tried reading this book. So I might try again when I'm older. Besides the two factors, the story was intriguing and very original.
