I am not
in the target age group for this series, and I knew that going into it. However, I am usually able to keep that in mind when reading books intended for younger audiences, and typically manage to select titles that are enjoyable for adults as well as children.
Overall this wasn't a bad read. It just wasn't really spectacular either. It lacked a level of substance that I want in my reading material. At least in the stuff I'm going to buy. I think even when I was
in the intended age group for this book (and the sequels) I would have had some issues with the worldbuilding (or rather, general lack thereof).
