My Review:
Basajaun was an overall enjoyable read.

The characters are fairly well-developed, as is the land upon which they sunder. I'm quite impressed with the author's use of knowledge for old farmhand tools, buildings, storage and the use of such things in their everyday lives.

The story is well-paced, not going so fast that you feel like something is missing nor so slow you feel as if the story will never get anywhere. The use of subtle magic is not overdone and gives the story some zest and helps it to be more unpredictable, making it that much more enticing of a read.

Her descriptions of people, places, things and actions are quite uncanny and she puts it into terms everyone can understand. I was quite amused to be reading her book and realize that I was thinking, 'Yep, done that before.'

This book is great not just for young adults, but all rabbit lovers who enjoy a story that manages to invoke every emotion you could possibly feel. I won't give anything away, but I loved the ending.
