Recommended for: Young adult readers, mostly
Read in December, 2007

The story is nothing much new, but there's a surprising whiff of fresh air to it, mostly due to the characters, I think.

I liked the heroine; she came close to being cookie cutter here and there, but for the most part Britain makes an interesting, refreshingly flawed character out of all the cliches.
She was unapologetically belligerent, had enough bad judgment to be real, and by the end, it felt like she'd grown up a little, rather than perfect all along and simply misjudged.
The final battle seemed a little rushed, in my opinion, but that seems to be a flaw inherent to the genre.

Don't expect sweeping, ground breaking fantasy, but it seems somehow... fresher, than most of its contemporaries.

KyleeJ Good to know that someone thinks it's worth reading. I have had this in my TBR for awhile. I think it will end up being my "B" author for my challenge.
