Magefable was a very exciting, adventurous book. I really liked it. It had lots and lots of twists that made it surprising. I liked that the author made it funny while at the same time not something unbelievably unrealistic. I also felt that the characters were relatable and very well developed. My favorite character was Durbin. I liked him because he was a brave young mouse who dreamed of going on an adventure and living up to the name of his father, Marcus the Brigand. I also liked Clove, who knew that the one who made this quest before her was unsuccessful, and yet still is determined to try. Something on the editor's part that I felt left something to be desired was that some of the grammar, spelling, and punctuation still should be corrected. I would recommend this fantasy book to ages 10 through 14 because there are some big words, lots of fighting, and some killing. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
