This is one of those novels that I definitely think our young adult population should be reading as it addresses many important issues, such as discrimination, bullying, tolerance, and forgiveness. I certainly don't expect to come across such phenomenal themes when I pick up a novel, but that's exactly what I got in Abbott's Watersmeet, and I really enjoyed it.

Abisina has had a very hard life, and yet, for the most part, she is relatively normal. I would think that someone who goes through as much as she does, being outcast, jeered at, and occasionally beaten, would not only hate those who treat her so unfairly, but also hate the world. Abisina is a much stronger person than I am, because I don't think I'd come out on top like she does, but even so, it's a struggle for her, and I loved that Abbott made Abisina's character so real. Yes, Abisina comes out on top, but she struggles with her feelings throughout the novel, and even though she was discriminated against by her own people, she easily becomes the discriminator when meeting others, such as dwarfs and centaurs. She's not perfect, by any means, and though she did and said some things that I scoffed at, in retrospect, I'd probably do the exact same, as shameful as that may be. It is very easy for us to become what we hate, especially if we've experienced it our entire life (being bullied to becoming a bully, etc.). It's just as easy for us to fear a certain thing or group if we've experienced unpleasantries because of it/them (such as a fear of all dogs because one bit us once upon a time), and I really loved the struggle that takes place throughout the novel as Abisina must come to terms with the idea that not all dwarfs, centaurs, etc., have ill will towards others.

I really enjoyed the fantasy aspect of this novel as Abbott fleshes out the mythological creatures we don't hear all that much about: centaurs, fauns, trolls, dwarfs, and fairies. Though we learn more about some than others, I was initially drawn to this novel because of the title--I wanted to know more about centaurs and Abbott definitely provided a lot of information. And, I love that she provided both sides of the coin for these creatures; not all are good, and not all are bad, which, again, goes back to the idea that we are all unique and prejudice against others is a terrible thing.

Overall, I really enjoyed the journey Abisina embraks on in order to find her father and try to save her people from the evil that has taken over. At some points I did feel like the novel was a bit slow in terms of action, but when the action came, Abbott did a phenomenal job capturing the reader's attention and bring it all to life.

Overall a fairly tight, fast-moving, fantasy adventure novel. The main characters are interesting and well-crafted, plus, the plot & subplots are highly imaginative and engaging. I believe most readers who enjoy Fantasy/SciFi novels will like this book.

Outcast, village tries to kill her and told all her life that she is worthless. When she runs for her life, she is helped by dwarfs that she has always beleived to be demons. But she is one tough little girl with a good heart and keeps on trucking.

I enjoyed this story and can't wait until I am able to get hold of the next one.

The world she has created feels like it existed before this book started, the story has a mythos to it, I enjoyed the way Abbott has created a believable world in spite of the fact that mythical creatures populate it.

I would recommend it to anyone interested in females who save the day, rather than one who needs saving.

An enjoyable fantasy story of good vs evil that was a quick and easy read. The imagery was part Lord of the Rings, part Avatar, yet still a little something of its own. Looking forward to the sequel The Centaur's Daughter. Teens and middle-schoolers will enjoy this, as will older readers who liked The Hunger Games.

I thought this books was pretty good. My only complaint was that the main character was a little inflexible and unwilling to see a different view. Basically she's a whinny little girl. But get past that and the book is great!

Was very good right from the start. I highly recommend it if you like the fantasy genre. I can't wait until the next book in the series.
I really enjoyed this book. I am looking forward to more from this author. I know I will enjoy them as well.
