Kickass heroine is definitely Donia. Aislinn has her moments of badassery, but overall she just seemed like a placeholder - she didn't seem to have a character, just a set of rules which she followed.

I dunno - this had a really interesting world and some pretty awesome characters, but the plot seemed skeletal and a lot of very intriguing things went completely without explanation. It seemed like this book was the second one in a series, or something - all this background information that we didn't have was simply assumed, or touched on as if it'd be resolved later. Which doesn't really work in a one-shot like this, even though the same characters apparently show up in Ink Exchange.

Seth, howevs, I loved. It's not often we get a human hero who isn't a dumbass - he researched and poked and prodded until he knew he and his closest were safe, and was hot while doing so. ILU, Seth. Call me, bb.
