Read in April, 2012

While I have a penchant for YA novels, I have to admit to a certain amount of trepidation when it comes to anything that smacks of fairy lore. As a general rule (at least for me), most of the books of that genre tend to blend mindlessly into one sappy teen love story after another. You can imagine my pleasant surprise when I found that this do not go in for the same fairy-related hooks that so many other novels go for.

So as to not give much of anything away, I will say that Ms Hocking has managed to find a twist on your standard fantasy and put into play a new set of ideas and character backgrounds than any I'd seen before. I've been voraciously reading this series and am actually quite sad to see that I'm nearly done with the third book now.
