I'm actually torn about this book. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The writing was pretty good and the story moved along nicely. The setting, as unbelievable as it was, was fun and exciting. The characters were well drawn and likable and unlikable as appropriate. I read it as fast as I could, and wanted more when I was finished.

On the other hand, there were quite a few times where it was difficult to stay oriented about how buildings were laid out on streets or rooms were laid out in buildings. Maybe that's just hard to do in books. It didn't really detract from the story, since the characters were confused about their location anyway. The ending was a bit of a letdown.

Even so, I like the characters, world, and writing so much that I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next books in this series.
