Review from Mia, aged 12.

This book is about thirteen year-old Denizen Hardwick, an orphan who only knew his parents for two years. Crosscaper Orphange is the only place Denizen has seen in eleven years. But when an auntie he has never heard of about sends for him, his dull life suddenly turns vibrant. A colleague of his auntie’s picks him up. And after an encounter with a nightmarish creature, the teenager learns about an entire different world. He’s taken to mysterious Serephin Row, where he learns aboout the Knights of the Borrowed Dark, people who use words to destroy creatures made of darkness. Denizen then meets his auntie and experiences a period of time where light bursts out of him. This means he can be a Knight, like his auntie and her colleagues. He’s offered a career, but will he choose to take it?

This book was an amazing read with an excellent story-line. It’s the first proof-copy I have gotten in a while and I was glad I got it. It is fairly easy to read and follow. Recommended to ages 9+ who like fantasy, action, adventure, fiction and mystery.
