3.5 stars from me. I liked this and thought it was compelling, but I had a couple problems with it.

1. High fantasy (which I define as fantasy taking place in a made up world complete with made up cultures) deserve a map in the book and a glossary at the back. This book has neither and I found myself really wanting (and somewhat needing) one.

2. I know we live in a post-Harry Potter world and all, but... (view spoiler) It could be petty, but it's the way I are.
