Kiatana's Journey by Natalie Erin

I was gifted this book from LibraryThing for an honest review. Kiatana's Journey is a delightful fantasy about a sassy fairy, Kiatana, who runs the forest in which she lives. She really wants to get away from her responsibilities so when Keota and his changer Ionan appear she decides to make a journey with them. Before they can leave a deadly plague strikes the creatures living in the forest so their journey turns into a quest to find the cure. Two cute lion cubs accompany them on their way.
The quest takes place in a nicely drawn world. Ms. Erin describes her surroundings and characters in interesting and varied ways. Parts of the story at the beginning were a little rushed and I would have liked to learn more about the forest at the beginning of the book. I did find that the story was a little juvenile for me, but I think it's perfect for younger preteen readers.
