The Orchard of Hope
While amusing, this book is most certainly intended for younger audiences only. There isn't much character development and the story solely centers on the quest and the weird quirks of the characters (a perpetually hungry gargoyle, a weird wizard who doesn't dress properly, etc.). Also, it's worth noting that this is second in a series, although it serves alright as a stand alone. I didn't feel like I missed out on anything.
Overall, all it was meh. 4th through 7th graders may enjoy.
I received this book free through Librarything Giveaways in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
