School Library Journal - Magdaline Henderson-Diman, formerly at Bass Harbor Memorial Library, Bernard, ME

"Plot, premise, and artistic presentation are the strengths of this riveting fantasy. . . .The authors weave a compelling tale of adventure and friendship in alternating chapters, accentuated with the ongoing suspense of a numinous quest that frequently tests the strength and character of these relatable protagonists. . . .Pen-and-ink drawings, enhanced with digital painting and photography, draw readers into this magical kingdom where a battle for freedom, life, and love ensues. The stunning realism of the illustrations provides an ironic and vivid visual backdrop for this charming coming-of-age narrative." - School Library Journal

Publishers Weekly

"First in the planned Faerieground series, Bracken and Fraser’s novel gets a boost of emotional and visual depth from Sawyer’s lush full-color illustrations...the artwork gives the story a strong sense of atmosphere, in both the human and faerie realms." - Publishers Weekly

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB)

"As important to the storytelling, though, are the striking and richly atmospheric full-page illustrations that resonate somewhere between hyper-beautiful fantasy and apprehensive fear. Digitally enhanced photorealistic renderings of the girls, the woods, and the faeriefolk who live there possess a dreamlike quality in their play of light, shadow and texture across fully saturated colors. The plot itself has enough archetypal qualities to feel both familiar and hauntingly strange at the same time, especially for middle-schoolers; lovers of fantasy art and readers who still want to believe in 398.2 will add this to their favorites list." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (BCCB)
