I think this book is considered magical realism combined with historical fiction and for some crazy reason, it worked.  This story really has it all, love, sacrifice, death, adventure, hope, and even a mythical creature created from the earth.  Interwoven brilliantly, the story follows three Jewish women trying to survive during WWII. It is told honestly, lyrically, and beautifully and will make you question what it means to have a soul.  Some of the most breathtaking scenes involve a golem and a heron. If that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will.

I TRIED SO HARD TO FINISH THIS BOOK. SO VERY, VERY, VERY, HARD! But after 200 pages I finally had to give up.  HOWEVER, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good book. It just means that it wasn’t a good book for me. I am not much of a fantasy reader.  There were tons of characters and setting and plots and I just didn’t have the patience to follow it. Also, the story moved too slow for me. I loved the parts about the dragons and the characters training to be dragon riders. I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s writing style and descriptions and the world she created.  If you enjoy reading the Game of Thrones series and the Lord of the Rings series and any other type of epic fantasy stories, then I truly believe you will love this book.

Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.
