Heroes of the Valley

by Jonathan Stroud

Grade: Good

Not my favourite of his. Almost "All right", except that the plot and setting were quite intriguing, and I read it in a day. I didn't like the girl very much in this one, and thus the romance. She seemed too stereotypical modern-young-adult-novel girl. Told she couldn't fight, resisted, told again, fought anyway, all strong minded.

The protagonist was quite different than usual, though. His looks were very strange, but I liked them. And the twist at the end was excellent.

Anyway. I still hope Jonathan Stroud writes tons more books. I only have two or three left to read!
