You could classify this book as a typical fantasy adventure novel, where the main character befriends some sort of magical creature and they travel together. However, you would be wrong. "Watersmeet" has these elements, yes, but the story is told in such a way that it reaches out to all your senses, unlike most other fantasy books. Also, instead of the main character being perfect, Abisina has some fears she has to conquer. The irony is that she has been shunned most of her life because of others who have that fear.

That may not be very clear, but I don't want to give too much away! This book is amazing and hard to put down, so... go pick it up! :)
