I don't know what I can say about this one that hasn't already been said. Yes, it's true, it is sort of a mash up of Harry Potter and Narnia. But it's so much more than that as well. I really liked this book, though I can't really explain why. It kept me interested the whole time through, which not many books do. It was fun and a little dark as well, and it made me laugh quite often. I had no idea that this was a series, and there was another book coming out next year, until I flipped to the last page and saw it advertised there. It wasn't a cliffhanger, it wrapped up quite well within the story, but it also left room to continue. Highly recommended - you might like it and you might not, but it's definitely worth a try!

Nan I liked this book quite a bit, too. I have no idea what to expect from the second book, and I'm refusing to check out spoilers for it. I'd like it to be as surprising as this one was for me.

Dawn I feel the same way... I have a feeling that it's either going to be a complete hit or a complete miss.. I'm hoping for a hit!
