    WHAT READERS ARE SAYING:
    
    "Natalie Wright has divined in Emily's House a simultaneous modern and ancient fairy tale of the greatest kind: sans parents, sans immediate consequence, sans cowardice. Bravery is said to be not the lack of fear, but action in the face of it. Like the best of Grimm, Perrault and Charles Schulz, Ms. Wright's kids find themselves amidst adventure, terror and turmoil, as well as ineffective and/or absent parental units. By their own bootstraps they must find help themselves to find their way home, to save not only each other, but perchance an entire civilization. "Adults drool, kids rule" is the motto for any well-written young adult or children's tale. Natalie's kids indeed rule. 
    
    This one will last, alongside Grimm, Perrault and Schulz, in the coffers of timeless, fantasy literature. Plus, there's Hindergog and no one could not love Hindergog! Well done, Ms. Wright. Well done, indeed." - Jennifer S. Devore, author of "The Darlings of Orange County"

Interesting, but opening with a dream is a bit overused. A bit flowery, but not over the top. Let's see where it goes from here.
Great use of adjectives and dropping the reader into an intense scene! Are you published with this book?

Sorry, I just had to point out that the actor who plays Killian on OUAT is Colin O'DONOGHUE. Sorry. Had to make that OUAT reference. Sorry. Sorry.
