The Wingsnatchers: Carmer and Grit, Book One
A fantasy book that has magic, fairies, and an evil magician! A boy, Carmer, and a one-winged fairy, Grit, work together to try to stop the Mechanist from using fairies as slaves. As I read the book, I started to really care about all the characters, especially Grit and Echo (a water fairy). I was also very surprised to see how Carmer and Grit got to know one another. In the beginning they don’t seem to understand each other, but at the end of the book they start to love and trust one another.
The cover is dark, but I loved all the details, and it helped me understand the world in which Carmer and Grit were living. I think more advanced independent readers, eight to twelve years old, who like magic and storytelling would like this book, but younger readers might find some parts scary, especially when they are walking in dark alleys or at the warehouse when creepy mechanical cats with yellow eyes are stalking them.
In this book, you’ll always want to know what’s going to happen next, even on the last page! So I’m glad it says “book one” on the cover as I want to read more about these two.
