I could develop absolutely no empathy whatsoever for the protagonist of this book. A 14 year old bent on revenge, a better swordfighter than many, cunning and clever and malicious? I read it through -- but similar to Sir Apropos of Nothing, this "cheer for me even though I'm an awful person!" - especially since the character does nothing to garner empathy, sympathy, or even see that his actions, perhaps, may be inappropriate... does not an endearing character make, and smacks of Mary Sue.
