Review: Even and Odd

Even and Odd Even and Odd by Sarah Beth Durst
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sarah Beth Durst is a new author for me, but I’d seen several recommendations, so I thought I’d give Even and Odd a try.

I enjoyed this magical adventure. Even, Odd, and Jeremy are great characters. The character development is good, especially for Jeremy.

The world building is really good, both in the magical land of Firoth, and in the mundane world. I liked the idea of the border shops, and the magical beings were fun.

The plot was really great, a good blend of the children adventuring on their own, but realistic levels of handing over to parents when available. A lot of children’s books seem to ignore this aspect, so this was good to see. The pacing is good, exciting, but not too tense or scary.

Overall, this was a fun and magical adventure, with great characters and convincing world building.

I was given a free copy of this book, my opinions are my own.
