The Lost Knight

How am I supposed to save the world when I’m not strong, not brave, not smart, and not particularly good at most things? I ran away from home the day after my thirteenth birthday when Auntie and her weird friend attacked me. Now I’m on the run with the Grim Reaper and a scary soldier. And I’m no longer on Earth. They were expecting me to be a Knight. The savior that’s supposed to stop a war and prevent the invasion to Earth. But I’m not. They grabbed the wrong girl. I just don’t know how to tell them.

You can walk on the ocean, interact with Pegasus, Unicorns, Faeries, and Elves, or have Disney like adventures. Candy Atkins provides everything in this book except thankfully another yet overused romance plot. It’s about time a YA author managed to write a beautifully enchanting adventure without requiring her female character to meet, fall in love and need a man.

 Even though this is a fantasy, Atkins manages to write so realistically you almost believe this world and these people she has created can exist. In here we get a female character females can actually be glad to spend their time with instead of an embarrassing stereotype.

 Her character development manages to bring to life some genuine characters you want to root for particularly as her main character tries to get a handle on her life while going through that oh so fun time when you’re no longer a kid but not quite an adult. Atkins managed to capture teen angst at its best.

 She takes you on an incredible journey through descriptive settings and attention holding plot lines into a brand new world that teenagers and adults can love. The only thing better is that this is the first in a new series so the greatness will continue.

 Thank you to Netgalley and Monster Publishing for allowing me to review this book.
