Read in August, 2011

I think this is a good example of suffering from what has come after. This was published in 2004 in Australia and 2006 here. However, in the ensuing years, YA fantasy has become a literary treasure trove. In 2006 I might have liked this slightly more. As it is, it doesn't really commit to being anything - full on magic, full on romance, even full on retelling of Shakespeare. Which makes it seem unnecessarily distant/slight.
