it was ok
Read in November, 2013

A great idea, that just doesn't work. This book is very much an "adult Harry Potter" mixed with "The Chronicles of Narnia", but without the quality character development and structured story telling. A lot of the book is complaining by the main characters and random actions that don't seem to lead anywhere. I have a hard time liking a book when I don't like the main characters, but putting that aside, I believe what I resented the most was that the story had such potential and then didn't live up to it. I half wonder what will happen to the characters, but not enough to read any more of the books.
