I enjoyed this - it's a light, fun read. Not particularly earth-shattering as far as fantasy goes, but it's got enough of a new take on magic (the source and shield system) to be intriguing, and the characters are enjoyable and well-written. The main character, Lee, is both sarcastic and in some ways totally insensitive. It's funny, but it also begins to grate after awhile. She reminded me a little bit of an early-season Toph from A:TLA. I also did not understand some of the relationship dynamics going on between some of the characters in the book, but pegged that down to Lee's unfamiliarity with life outside her academy.

At any rate, I liked this one enough to buy the next book in the series. I picked it up on a recommendation from @feliciaday, and I'm glad I did!
