A new student review of The Kingdom Lights by Steven VS

bygflower posted a new student review of The Kingdom Lights by Steven VS. See the full review.

To explain this book in one word... chaos.  Steven VS creates a fantastic place full of magic not unlike Harry Potter's world, but the book as a whole didn't keep me entertained and made my head spin because of excessively changed viewpoints and an incredibly complicated storyline. The beginning and middle were very confusing, and the end chaotic. It seemed to me that it was trying to be similar to Harry Potter, with a school for magic, and a bully, but the way it was written did not satisfy me. It's a shame, because it has the potential to be a great fantasy novel. The Kingdom Lights has a storyline with incredible promise, but the changing viewpoints and excessive description took away from what could have been a brilliant book.
