Okay, prepare for superlatives. I’ve been reading some pretty heavy stuff of late so when I saw this in my recommended reading on Amazon, and the cover art looked pretty cool, I thought I would give it a shot. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I needed to read a little fiction. It’s listed as middle grade, so maybe it would be too kiddie or something of the like. Oh my word, this thing has shades of two of my favorite authors, Lewis and Tolkien, and no I am not exaggerating. This thing is a page turner. Two young rabbits whose world falls apart find themselves thrust into an epic adventure. While we know the characters are rabbits, they are so well anthropomorphized that you soon forget they’re not human and they become very real and relatable. Someone needs to option this thing into a movie. Smith knows how to tell a story. Yes he sets us up for a sequel, but the story still has a beginning, a middle and a satisfying resolution, something many writers of series forget. I can’t get over how good this book was and I look forward to starting the sequel. Take a chance on this one, it’s fantastic.
