First, let me say that I was astonished with how quickly I read this book. I'm a fast reader - but 500 pages in a day and a half is quick even for me. The writing just flows, it's an extremely easy read and easy to pick up on the plot, even with the introduction of a bazillion races and their quirks.

The only issue that I had, the one that kept this book from being truly great, is that the lack of explanation with her magical powers. It got rather annoying how ignorant the main character was - I got the point that she never learned anything but it certainly didn't help me understand what was going on during magical fight scenes. This ruined some of the book, but not enough to eclipse the new and interesting storyline and characters presented.
