Book Review: The Dark Hills Divide

Summary: The Dark Hills Divide introduces readers to Alexa Daley, who annually visits the town of Bridewell. Alexa is curious about what lies beyond the massive ramparts that surround the city and the walled roads that link Bridewell to nearby towns; soon after town leader Thomas Warvold passes away, Alexa finds herself outside the walls, acquires a stone with remarkable powers, and discovers that she's meant to stop a potential war from occurring.

Thoughts: This was a simple, cute read. It didn't really feel like there was much to it and the pacing dragged a little but I actually enjoyed it.  Here we have we have the rare appearance of a child heroine who (for the most part) acts like a child. Not a little brat but a mischievous, occasionally oblivious, and curious little girl. The setting and world building was well done and don't let the cover throw you off, it's not scary in the least. My one major problem with this story is the major transition that takes place outside the walls (you'll know it when you get there) that just feels like the author so wanted it to be a surprise he forgot to make it feel like an actual part of the story we had previously been reading. This is, really my only complaint though to this otherwise fun little tale.

Content: An old man dies in the beginning, a simple death of old age. And some minor violence. Otherwise a perfectly clean book.
