Read from September 23 to 27, 2011 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I found this book a bit hard to get into at times, which is why I didn't rate it higher. But I did like some things about it:

*Lou--I loved him. He's not just an ifrit, he's a dog, and he's adorable in his dogness.
*Good humor bits. It had me laughing out loud, which is good!
*Interesting magic system
*The musical aspects were authentic, enlightening, and fascinating.
*The look at San Francisco, which is a beautiful town that I have had the pleasure to visit and would love to go back to. And soon!

Overall rating: 3.5/5.0 stars. I'll definitely be following this series.

Shanshad Whelan I tried the first book in this series some time ago and found the writing didn't quite capture me. Especially since I'd figured out a key plot point well before any character in the story seems to.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Self-Proclaimed Book Ninja) I didn't love it, but I liked some aspects, especially Lou. I could see what you mean about not being captured, though.
