I remember enjoying this book but couldn't remember enough about it to say why. Adventure, fighting, mysticism, betrayal and a surprise ending should add up to a winner, and it does, though I still find it a little slow. Still, Turner's writing is dynamic and her characterization top-notch. Worth a re-read and am looking forward to re-reading #2.
