A world no one would believe. 

From the moment Lyris is treated to coffee by a beautiful stranger, she has no idea that her life is about to change forever. In her enthusiasm to start at a new school with a new boyfriend, Lyris is almost able to look past his oddities. Almost. The way he eyes up her striking red hair. The way he loves that she’s seventeen. “The perfect age.”  And the way he’s gone from all but begging to show her a specific room in a specific house to making her swear never to even think about it again. When Lyris doesn't take his strange warnings seriously, she finds that nothing could have prepared her for what lay behind that door. 

Suddenly, Lyris finds herself in a world no one would believe. A world where she’s only a few inches tall and giants aren’t creatures from fairy tales. Where humans are no longer the dominant race, but pets auctioned off to the highest bidder. Lyris understands the true danger of such a place, but there seems to be one person on her side. Her kind and surprised captor.  And while Brindt appears to be sweet and trustworthy, he also straddles the line between seeing her as an equal and a cute animal. 

Lyris has to get home… before the one person can turn to becomes the one person who can’t let her go. 

REVIEW BY: Angel, age 12 years, 10 months


This book is amazing and is very surprising! This book is about a 17-year-old red-headed girl named Lyris Christmas. Lyris meets a boy named Wyatt who is peculiar but super cute so she falls for him. Who could blame her, right?  

Wyatt begins acting crazy and starts talking about an abandoned house and telling Lyris not to go to the house without him. So, of course, Lyris gets curious and does exactly what Wyatt told her not to do. 

Now she is in a world filled with giants! While in this giant world, Lyris begins to fall for a giant named Brindt. 

My favorite part is when Lyris and Brindt finally get to talk to each other. I recommend this book to older readers who love a different type of love story. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up due to some PG-13 scenes.
