I found this story very enjoyable. It would be a great chapter book to read to your children or one for middle school children to read themselves. It's light reading with a fun adventure, an epic storyline and characters that were a lot of fun to read more about. I really liked Max and Trudesile - they were the perfect heroes, in my opinion, and grew a lot from the story. This was a great coming of age story, with lots of twists and turns, and characters from mythology and King Arthur tales that made the book even more fun.
The only issue that I had with this book was the fact that it had a few editing issues, but nothing that takes away the flow of the story.
Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received.
