Read in March, 2010 — I own a copy

This story was a pleasant surprise. Palmatier has done a terrific job of keeping the novel fixed inside one character's point of view while keeping us hooked.

The lead character is a fascinating hero (heroine) and an unlikely one. The magic system is original and interesting. The setting is gritty and lively.

If you're not into trilogies, you'll be pleased to know you can read this book as a stand alone novel without committing to two more (ie., to get the end of the story). That said, I've read and enjoyed the whole trilogy (and I'm not a fan of trilogies).

Worth a look!
