  • I love this book I actually have it at home. I used to think uggh its such a fat book. I cant read that I bet its really boring but I think I spoke a bit to quick its a really good book. never judge a book a by its cover.

    this book remindes me of the movie the seeker in which there is a boy who is the seventh son of the seventh son if I’m correct just like in the book and he has a twin who is kidnapped as a baby he has to fight against someone in order to get his brother back.
