It even has dragons in it! They're not intelligent and not nice, but they still play a significant part in the unfoldings of this story.
I liked the main character. She didn't act too adult for an eleven-year-old, and yet not overly immature. I also really liked the powers and such, just a little bit of magic the way I like it. (IMHO, Eragon, Alanna, Harry, and Maerad have too much power to be really interesting).
First-person, great job. I also liked the ending and how it will tie in so well with the second book. The plot was well-done and revealed at the right pace.
What didn't I like? Some of the telling seemed a little stiff. That may be because LK translated the original into English or something.
