really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy
Read from August 12 to 16, 2011

Rating clarification: it's 3.5 stars
I liked this book and I'll definitely read the following instalment, however there are some negative points for me as well.
I like the idea of following the shadows instead of the light and showing that actually at times grey is much lighter than what's supposed to be white...
I liked the evolution of Kylar as a character and also most of the secondary characters, even the evil ones ;o)
However I believe there are quite a few holes in the plot. I don't like info duping, but I like to somewhat be able, or at least have some hints about the general plot or backstory, and in this book quite a few things that come out of the blue without any previous hint and I went like...what? where was this explained or hinted at before? Who are these people? Why has nobody talked about them before?
So I'll definitely read the next book looking for those clues
