That awkward moment when I hit the bottom of my reading-list and finding myself staring at the oncoming abibliophobia with fear! Valda: The Wandmaker by Giri: the Story-maker came just in time and gave me hope. First thing that excited me was the knowledge that this is going to be a series and not a standalone. Huff! I can ward the fear away longer. The book caters to all ages, not just to kids. Giri makes us ponder over some profound ideas. – Amazon Review
