Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

THE NETHERGRIM is something of a standard-issue fantasy novel -- pleasant enough but not offering much in the way of innovation or originality. The main characters -- Edmund, Katherine, and Tom -- have a little depth to them, but the setting is the kind of medieval town that's been explored many times over.

Young readers who have not encountered many examples of the form will probably enjoy The Nethergrim for its straight-ahead plot, appealing characters, and exciting climactic showdown. More sophisticated readers may not feel compelled to await the sequel in this planned trilogy.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
