I received this book in an exchange for an honest review

I am not too sure entirely how I feel about this book. I like this book, but there are certain things contributing towards not me liking this book. The kingdom or tribes that are described in Animalia are very hostile and even vile, there were a lot of things about these tribes which were very convoluted which made it very difficult for me to understand some of it.

[ If Sheysu is a mixed blood, does that make her sister too? Personally I would love it if she were a mix of everything, that would the make story line much more interesting (spoiler)].

I can't decide if I liked the characters of Sheysu or Aurum; they were very interesting but I did find times where I was not very impressed with Sheysu. I did like Lupinum and Simione a lot better, Lupinum represented the strength and courage, whereas Simione I thought symbolised Wisdom and more healer alike qualities.

It was generally good to read, especially if you are in to all the animal prophecy stuff. I hope the next book is more elaborated in areas where it wasn't so much in the first and gain a bit more background knowledge about Sheysu
