I LOVED this book and was actually very surprised by just how good it was. It had sounded interesting but very vague in it's description and if a friend hadn't read it first it probably would have languished on my 'to read' list for ages.

Wonderfully developed characters, heart-swelling friendships and the novelty and overwhelmingness of first love. However, that makes this book sound rather sappy & 'Oprah-ish' which is not at all the case!

Great adventure, humor, wit. The intrigue of strange powers. The cruelty of power-ravaged kings.

Needless to say...loved it.
