I've always enjoyed reading about female protagonists who have to disguise themselves as boys, which is of course a character type common to the fantasy genre, though I guess the same could be said for most genres. However, Flewelling goes a bit further with it than most, creating a main character born a girl, but who is at birth given every appearance of a male through magic. It's interesting to see something like this, and it gives a new twist to an old idea. Overall, this was enjoyable to read, with good characters, plot, and writing.

...I'm not so great at reviews, and I'm sure someone else has said it better. But I enjoyed this book, and figured I might as well say why.
