    A great story about the journey of the Magi to visit the newborn Christ Taken from a new unexpected perspective of a young lady who's young brother has a gift for prophetic dreams They join the caravan of one of the Magi and journey across Persia with him Loved the story Ms Fletcher is also kind enough to have a notes section at the end of the book filling us in on some of the research that she did in order to write a book that had the right feel for the time culture and geographic area that she was portraying


  3. Adena Adena says:

    It is adolescent literature so reading it as an adult was a bit boring But it's interesting and ends up being a cool story Just a bit predictable at parts


  4. Richard Richard says:

    This novel is supposed to be for middle school aged readers or perhaps teens However it is vividly imagined with living breathing characters plus a realistic setting and historical background Thus the tale should appeal to adults as well And of course the novel is a new take on an ancient story that journeys to the world at that time and depicts it as the dangerous place that it wasI was pulled in as well as many others should be


  5. Tyler Tyler says:

    I might not have read this book had I known how girly it was This is a story about two children of royal blood Mitri fourteen year old girl and Babak four year old brother of Mitri After a disastrous attempt by their father to seize the throne Mitri and her brother are reduced to thieves and beggars Mitri determined for her and Babak to rejoin their family in a faraway city starts selling her brother's dreams which are prophetic to earn passage They end up on a series of adventures including the three famous magi who brought the three gifts to baby Jesus It is a girly book like I said Mitri struggles trying to keep disguised as a boy throughout the story and her changes into adolescents are making that difficult Her emotional story is what makes this a girl's book Also I have to warn all readers that this doesn't end like a traditional fairy tale It ends happy but not without disappointing and sorrowful losses


  6. Aida Aida says:

    The plot was certainly interesting there are however a few things that were so horribly wrong with the book For instance you're talking Iran The description of camels and sand and desert that's Arabia Seriously get it together And it had rather strong feminism she was treated with a lot of respect It was an interesting way to look at things but the plot was vague and boring with the 3 men and when it became important one barely recalled much about it Again the descriptions were nothing similar to what Iran was For one thing at their time there were places to rest at between times designed for such purpose so their struggle or finding ways and lack was water was ridiculous The Author had to do her research way better


  7. Michelle Michelle says:

    This book was really great Mitra was a great sympathetic narrator and I really enjoyed learning about ancient Persian culture I did give it four stars because at times she became a little obsessed with whether or not certain young men thought she was a boy or a girl she's really a girl hiding as a boy Most of all I loved how the Magi were portrayed each with a distinctive personality and each taking something from the miraculous meeting with the infant king to be Good read


  8. Jane G Meyer Jane G Meyer says:

    I was totally taken by this book Since I didn't read any back or catalog copy I had no idea what the premise was for this story It was lovely to have it unfold in front of me and then near the end for the entire plot to come soaring into focus What a great piece of writing I'd give it five stars like so many of the other things I read but then I'd have no where to go when I read something like Tolkien or Enger


  9. Shannon Shannon says:

    My feelings about this one are complicated On the one hand the setting was wonderful and vivid and it wasn't as preachy as I'd feared it could be On the other Mitra drove me crazy She was a selfish bitch and while that was very true to character and her motivations were understandable I still wanted to strangle her Oh and this one features a tacked on love triangle with an ending romance that should have worked for me but didn't So all in all meh

    Recommended as good Christmas reading from Brooke Great story This is one I will think about for awhile I keep varying between 4 and 5 stars Fictional story of the Magi traveling to see a new great king but told from the perspective of a kid traveling with them So much in here The version I had of the book included a series of uestions she poses that she used to help in her writing of the story which was uite interesting as well Definitely good seasonal read
