We rated this book:


Thornlight is set in a cursed world. It is a magical world, but also a twisted one. Fueled by a curse that passes through the rulers by murder, darkness spreads across the land. It is thought to be due to a kindly monster called the Guglot.

In this world, the good is bad and the bad is good. The story is compelling, fascinating, and frightening. Claire Legrand is a master of description, particularly the description of emotion. If you read this book, you will be caught up in it and feel a need to finish it. Thornlight should be owned by all middle school libraries. If you love suspense and bravery in your stories, you should buy this book. It’s absorbing qualities allow you to read it again and again.

If you are resistant to new stories, but love books like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Percy Jackson, or Keeper of the Lost Cities: Nightfall, this is the book for you. If you are a reader in middle school and love darkness, scares, quick plot turns, and shocks in your books, Thornlight is for you.
