Liked this well enough (to read in one sitting). Don't think I'll feel very compelled to read others in the series however, as it seems all the intriguing things have happened now. Elf understands what her power is, and that she's not alone. We learned about the extent of the badness of the newish totalitarian order in which she lives, and the brave souls who will fight it. The blurbs for future books in the series tend me towards believing the rest follows a quest plotline, and I'm just not enchanted enough to keep on. I suspect that when I want an absorbing, escapist fun read, however, I might pick up the one if it's available at the library.
