bookshelves: audiobook, 2011, young-adult
Read from October 24 to 29, 2011

I don't think this book/series is marketed as young adult, but it does have that sort of feel to it. Everything is a bit simplistic; the main conflict between Sonea and the magicians is mainly that of misunderstanding and extreme differences of class. The characterization is rather simplistic as well with no real depth. The setting is the rich magician's guild complex and the poor slums.

There's lots of opposites in conflict, lots of black and white but very little in shades of grey. It's a relaxing read, especially considering the heavier books I read earlier this month, but I do hope that the rest of the series has a bit more depth to it.
