My review:

    OK so three words pop to mind when i think about this book DIFFERENT, INTERESTING, and AMAZING!!! It doesn't start off very fast paced but once it gets going you can't put it down. I felt really bad for Sera (the main character) at the beginning of the story. She just really didn't have anyone to really count on but as the story progressed she found the stability and family so to speak that she needs in her life. I love that she has an integrity that you don't find in people very much anymore. I really enjoyed reading this story it was very heartfelt in some ways and heart wrenching in others. The characters are nicely written and the story line is like nothing i've read before. When the synopsis says " Wander Dust is a breathtaking fantasy that will catapult you through a story of time and love." it is absolutely one hundred percent the one sentence that describes this book perfectly. I recommend that everyone put this book at the top of your to be read pile because I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
