Have any of you guys read this book? I just finished it two nights ago and I’ve decided that I really enjoyed it. I’d never even heard of the book or author before. But as I finished a book on my Kindle it popped up as a recommendation and I decided to do something I’ve never done before, actually try one of the books. I downloaded the demo and immediately purchased the book when I finished the demo. I am pretty much finished with all of the highly recommended books for both sci-fi and fantasy, so it was a pleasant surprise to find something else that isn’t on any lists.

I found the writing to be superb, and the story & pacing engaging. The side stories for character development were always relevant to future developments in the story.

I wasn’t entirely sold on the magic explanation, but I was still able to enjoy the book. It is part of a series, but this one wraps up neatly, and can stand on its own as a single book.

I’m curious what other readers think of the book.
