    1. Anna Ciddor Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Night of the Fifth Moon book, this is one of the most wanted Anna Ciddor author readers around the world.

    2. Despite the fact that I did not enjoy the last Anna Ciddor book that I read, the blurb on the back of this was sufficiently interesting to not discourage me - which just says that I'm somewhat of a sucker for celtic history/fantasy stories. We have a group of druids, who have 6 fosterlings, only one of which can stay and become anruth (which I didn't work out whether this was apprentice or journeyman). I alternated between not thinking about the possible veracity of the story, and finding some r [...]

    3. Actual rating: 2.5I feel about this book like I feel about the Septimus Heap books it wasn't bad, but it wasn't particularly exciting or interesting, but I read it anyway. And I didn't mind it. However, there were a few problems I did have with this book:The first being how incredibly obvious the ending was going to be. I knew how it was going to end before I finished reading the first chapter. SEMI SPOILER ALERT!I mean really when your main character is in a competition, when do they ever not w [...]

    4. This was a good book it was the first book that I've read in a while and it was a nice introduction back to reading and reminded me why I love reading in the first place.This book did exactly what I need in a book and that was to be written so well that I could imagine myself with Ket in the competition I felt every emotion that he felt and saw everything that he saw.This sounds like it should have been 5 stars but there were downsides to this book as well although the way the book was written w [...]

    5. From the time Ket watched a druid stand on one foot and chant at his father during a battle, forcing him to surrender to an enemy, all he has ever wanted is to learn magic. But there are six candidates for the position of an anruth in the druid’s camp—and only one will gain the coveted position. Each new moon another candidate is eliminated. Between one new moon and the next, the candidates learn to recite poetry, sing songs, throw spears, watch the march of the seasons and take part in the [...]

    6. An exciting book with a meaningful message of the value of every heart and its talents. It might not be a classic or a full epic--but it was a lovely read, it was. I enjoyed the moods and scenes, and the shifting between them. I especially loved how human Ket and his five companions were when it came to their feelings at being rejected, surviving for the next moon, towards each other.One of a handful of books that I enjoyed enough to read a second time.

    7. I hadn't read anything of Anna Ciddor's before this book. I whizzed through it as she is coming to our school tomorrow on an author visit. While written for the 9-11 year-old's, it has enough action in it to interest the casual 11-13 crowd too. Lots of research went into the druidic aspects of the story. A real winner for kids.

    8. This lovely book about apprentice druids may get bumped up to a 5 soon I have the urge to just buy it so I can enjoy it over and over again. Not many books make it to a 5 star for me, so that is saying something!

    9. Read this book to my 10 year old and we loved hearing about Druids and learning lots of early druid history and all about oghams (early writing), beliefs and rituals. The ending was a bit weak and it got a bit slow in the middle but it was good solid fiction and we both enjoyed it!

    10. A druid story - well told & quite well-written & engaging, but something was missing. The characters didn't seem deep enough to the reader, when (because of what they were doing) they needed to be. It seemed 'described not felt'.
