Read in January, 2011

I must confess there were a few false starts for this one. But once I stuck around, I was pleased with the plot and character development. In many ways it reminded me of Graceling - different, of course, but I think those that liked Graceling might turn to this one when looking for something else to read.
I will say that the biggest reason it took me a while to get into it was the sheer number of characters. I kept thinking of my creative writing instructor and how he'd tell us not to introduce so many characters, or at least not all at once, and this fell right in the face of that. However, it was a fun plot with a dash of romance, and I enjoyed it. I'm much more likely, of course, to pick up Mairelon the Magician or one of Wrede's other later publications, but this just proves that she got better with time - a feat most authors cannot claim.
