On her weblog Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban – who wrote Two Moon Princess – reviews her “favorite books, those books that touched me while I read them and that stayed with me long after they ended … (as) … a small way of paying homage to their authors and … (to) … introduce them to new readers.” Most of the books she reviews are ” are aimed at young adult … (but) … even if your driving license says your teen years are past, don’t be afraid, and dare to read them. Your courage will be rewarded.” Here she writes about Eagle of the Ninth.
