    [I received my copy of this book for free through First Reads giveaway program.]I enjoyed this book very much. I really liked how the main character, Robyn, was portrayed. Robyn's desire to do something different than what her culture usually dictated wasn't so much a result of a plucky, "in-your-face" attitude that so many heroines are portrayed with, but rather a deep admiration of her father; so many girls embraced their mother's profession, why not her father's? Casting was as much in her b [...]

    The Casting is set in 350 A.D. and tells the story of Robyn, a young girl who wants to become a bronze caster. Robyn is the youngest daughter of Felic the Master Caster. The book opens as Robyn struggles with telling her family that she wants to follow in her father's footsteps and take over the family foundry. In order to reach her goal Robyn faces resistance from her older sister and the foundry's lead apprentice Ghiley. Eventually it is up to Robyn to save her family's legacy.Johnson did an e [...]

    In the interest of full disclosure, I won a soft-cover review copy of The Casting from Pugalicious Press. Knowing nothing about the plot, I saw the cover and thought it would be a story about a witches' coven. Wrong! So wrong. Casting refers to working with bronze. But you know what? This book sure did work its spell on me!Not only did the author Joyce Shor Johnson apply a Herculean effort in capturing the atmosphere and details of 4th century Ireland in The Casting, she wrapped those details ar [...]

    I love to read books, all kinds of books. But what I really love is when the author allows bad things to happen to the main character and we’re there to witness the heartache and the growth.Robyn wants nothing more than to be a bronze caster, like her father. But most girls choose to be a healer, like her sister. Robyn musters the courage to ask and her dad says yes. But the road isn’t easy. There is Gilhey, her sister’s mate who is an apprentice and wants to take over too. And then, Robyn [...]

    I love reading books where I learn something! Well researched, with a lovely and sympathetic main character, this book is a must-read for anyone who loves middle grade books and/or historical fiction.

    I am a bit confused about who this book is aimed at. The plot was simple but enjoyable and the writing of some of the characters was surprsingly subtle. However the book was very short, 160 pages and the text was double-spaced throughout the book, making me wonder if the author was writing for older children. I honestly could have read the entire book in a matter of an hour or two. I think if I was a reader from the target audience I might have rated it as 4-stars, but instead my 3-star rating r [...]

    It was way too short and had this weirdly double spaced text (I'm guessing this was to make it appear longer?). The affect made me feel like I was reading a rough draft. But really, really good story. Thoroughly researched, complex characters, and engaging plot. It could have been so much better though if things were just fleshed out a little more. More description, more back story, more. . . everything. Like I said, this felt (and looked) like a double-spaced rough draft of a story with excelle [...]
