This is a really interesting and compelling story set in a community that lives underground, beneath a mountain. The central characters are likeable and positive, demonstrating loyalty and care in a society that has become too concerned with survival to worry about those things.
While the story is in one sense about the importance of physical light, there is also a deeper underlying moral sense that there is an even greater danger in moral and spiritual darkness.
Important messages about friendship and loyalty are delivered through Zadeki, Delvina and Reza, and those who open themselves to their influence.
I enjoyed this book, which I read easily in about an hour, and I will happily read the sequel. ‘Heart Of The Mountain’ has been awarded a Silver Acorn.
