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.
