I loved this book! It was so exciting! I couldn't put it down. Wulliam's father was the Riverkeep and Wull was set to take his place in a few days but he felt he wasn't ready. Then when his Papa's body was taken over by something he need to travel all the way to canna bay to kill a monster that was his papa's only chance at ever being himself again. On his way Wull takes on a stowaway, a "paying costemer and a mother and her child. They all need to make it to canna bay for different reasons and somehow they all meet... I loved the book! It was amazing, the ending was so beautiful. I loved the setting and the description. I also liked the story line. I think anyone who likes fiction or fantasy would love this book. I would suggest that they be older than 12. I would rate this 5 stars.

While Stewart has crafted an engaging and fantastical world on the shores of his fictional river, the characters are really what make this story great! Wull is a great hero but Till and Mix were my favorites! I found myself looking forward to the scenes that featured the two of them. Tillinghast the homonculus, was particularly hilarious!
