it was amazing
Read in May, 2011

The first time I read Tavi's story, I was absolutely enamored with it. I enjoyed the world that Butcher set up for playing in, with the anthropomorphized elements (like earth, air, wind and fire) making up the magic that they all use. Except young Tavi, who has no connection with any elemental furies.

That doesn't keep Tavi from doing what needs to be done, though. Oh, sure, like any teenager, he gets sulky sometimes, and he gets rebellious. But when the sheep need to be rescued, he goes to rescue the sheep. And when he needs to distract a savage Marat headmaster so his wounded uncle can get to safety, he does that, despite how much danger it puts him in. And so it goes, Tavi goes about doing what needs to be done, things that people older, wiser, and more powerful than him are largely unable to do.

All in all a very good book, and I look forward to all subsequent ones.
