Annnd . . . what do I think so far? I have loved reading this story sooooo much! I don't think I've read another story based on the Grimm tale of the Pied Piper--emphasis on grim--and the magic that makes the tale.
Kyra comes from an old family with piper magic, only she hasn't manifested any magic while even her younger sibling have. The story is a coming of age story with a sprinkle of mighty girl too.
The writing is beautiful. The characters are complex and have a thick weave of relationships. The story is full of hurt and hope.
This YA book comes out tomorrow (4-17-15)! (ISBN 978-0-9862001-0-6) Write yourself a note to order it--you will be happy you have this one on your shelf.
