I think I read too many rave reviews of this book before I actually got around to reading the book itself. I felt like this story had a hard time deciding what it wanted to be--fantasy? Science fiction? Historical fiction? That said, this identity crisis didn't detract from the story. I enjoyed it, but didn't quite feel it lived up to the hype.

April I would agree...it left me with mild enjoyment, but still not knowing what I truly took from it.
