An interesting beginning to a series of fantasy books, The Dark Hills Divide left me wishing it has been written for an older audience. The book follows young Alexa, daughter of the mayor, as she investigates her city and the walls around it. She discovers what lives outside the walls, and brings the truth to her people.
Watch Out For: The book begins with the sudden death of a character, and Alexa has to come to terms with being alone with the man when he died. Alexa is a very independent 12 year old, exploring by herself for days at a time. She learns a lot about judging other people as she learns to trust a foe and is betrayed by a friend.
