really liked it
Read from May 26 to June 08, 2012

There I was...stuck in town with nothing to read (since my brain had taken an early vacation, forgetting my book at home) and a long wait ahead of me - **PANIC!!** - so I rushed to the nearest library and pulled this one off of a random shelf, knowing absolutely nothing about it (and wishing I had phone #'s to some of my Goodreads book twins, even though many are halfway around the world and it would have been 3 in the morning their time!), but thought I'd give it a shot. Although the story wasn't exactly original, for a debut author, this didn't disappoint. There were only a couple of areas that were a little aggravating (I think the author meant to surprise the reader with a particular kind of magic the main character can do, but it backfires because he's GOOD at it, even though he was supposed to have been banned from using it -- my thought was how and when would he have been able to practice it?), but overall I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next two in the series.
