Lightfall was love at first sight. Entering this world of Irpa is utterly enchanting, and it feels as if you're discovering for yourself the wonderous details of its magic with each turn of the page. The story follows two unexpected companions, Bea and Cad, both looking for their lost families but finding each other instead, as they get whisked away on a more and more miraculous journey--while meanwhile a darker and more ancient magic is awakening. Lightfall is awe-inspiring in its worldbuilding, compelling in its storytelling, and delightful in it's humor, with a sprinkling of commentary about anxiety and facing our fears. By the end of the book, I was thinking deeply of how much we can each learn from Cad and Bea!
