Looking at the cover of this novel, I was reluctant to read it at all. It *looks* like a bad fantasy novel. Generic fantasy. Trashy fantasy.

I wouldn't give this novel 5 stars - it's not the best fantasy novel I've ever read or anything like that (currently The Name of the Wind holds that prize) - but I wouldn't give it 1 star and denounce it as trash, either.

The characters are compelling and generally likeable, although the Keeper and the Madigal are possibly too mysterious for my personal taste
