This is another one I was excited about, even bought a hardbound copy, and then was mildly disappointed. Love the medieval setting, it's well-plotted, one cares about the characters, but there just weren't any wonderful surprises: a really good book should have a few nice surprises.

I think it would be more fun if I could read it with someone young. It would have surprises for someone young, wouldn't it?
