Read in May, 2011

Ever-so-slightly dystopian in that there's a totalitarian government lurking somewhere back behind the plot contrivances. Mostly it's two teens who discover they have magic powers on the night the government comes to arrest them for it, and then the teens' escape from prison etc. I'd definitely peg this as fantasy before dystopian.

Lots of action and super-short chapters, great appeal for reluctant readers, but blaaaaaaah for me.

(Is it fair to say this is exactly what I expected, if what I'd expected was fluffy brainless not-superbly-written action sequences loosely held together with plot? Or can I only say that if I add a comma or four in there?)
