  1. Claire Belberg

    The Stringless is an inspiring fantasy of courage, friendship and the determination to live free from the control of fear. Serie knows she is no one special, but her journey to freedom from the strings has a greater impact than she imagines. Wrestling with despair and a sense of powerlessness in the face of the evil of Maitre, the sorcerer, her growing compassion leads Serie into trouble and into the hearts of many. Alisha Walkerden’s tale has several allegorical elements, well-handled to make an enjoyable reading experience which brings a fresh perspective.
