When these two meet as David is called to use music to save the king from nightmares, their story is a bittersweet one.
This one has it all, witches, heroes and heroines, kings, princesses, and even a giant.
What I loved: Sure, we all know the story of David and Goliath, but this book is an exciting, fresh look at the tale. Though I knew where the story was heading, I found myself desperately reading to see what happened next.
What I didn't love: There are spots, especially at the beginning, where this book took up more space than it needed to. While I appreciated the attention to building strong characters, the result was a very slow, windy start.
All in all, a good read. Recommended.
