Number of pages: 67

My rating: 4/5

Holy crap, what an amazingly creative and magical book!

The Flute Player is a novella about a guy called Oliver, who lives in a little community on the side of a mountain. Years ago, his best friend Thomas died. Thomas was the village flute player, so he had to play the flute in the morning and evening for the village. Oliver has to take over this role, but he is unhappy with it. When he saves a girl from a dragon, but no one else can see her, he must make some life changing decisions.

I loved Alexandria, and I loved how no one but Oliver could see her! She is really interesting, and her relationship with Oliver has a ton of chemistry. 

The setting for this book is amazing! Such a peaceful, quiet, original setting. Gosh, I wish I could live in a little mountain village with flute music... *sigh*

The book had a great plot. It was interesting and kept me engaged all the way. The book is really short, but it didn't feel boring or half-assed in any way. The writing is also amazing, and this book was very good quality.

This novella was awesome! It was pretty innocent, and very, VERY creative. I enjoyed every moment of it. I would recommend this to anyone, anywhere. It's great for children and adults, and could even make for a good bedtime story for the kids. This is definitely worth buying.

And dragons and little villages are awesome.

A copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
