Honestly, if you can get through the first couple of chapters, this book is actually quite a good read. But the whole beginning premise is a little silly, even for a fantasy book.
The plot was overly simple and the characters nothing special but it got the job done and the world and magic were extremely interesting.
Interesting plot, quick read, fun characters.
Not her best, but it was still pretty fun.
