Ottawa Review of Books Easter Edition – Water Sight Review by Wendy Hawkin
“An evocative epic laced with myth and fact… Powerful phrasing, sensory descriptions, and mythical references abound….This is a series for young adults and I recommend it to teachers and librarians. The characters face contemporary struggles in a historic setting. The mingling of myth, magic, and adventure will appeal to middle grade and high school students, but also their parents. The Last of the Gifted is a classic.” – Wendy Hawkin, Ottawa Review of Books https://www.ottawareviewofbooks.com/single-post/water-sight-by-marie-powell
