Very good fantasy, just enough off the beaten path to be interesting. Fast-paced and interesting throughout. Didn't want to put it down, and the end left me craving the next book (without relying on a cliff-hanger.)

Typical yet enjoyable commoner-is-really-special story. Nothing revolutionary here, but it is pleasantly written and well-paced. I wasn't much inclined to put it down once I started it, and am looking forward to the rest of the series.

Po Bronson
“educational television had a dramatic effect on relational aggression. The more the kids watched, the crueler they’d be to their classmates. This correlation was 2.5 times higher than the correlation between violent media and physical aggression.”
Po Bronson, NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children

“In studies where Cummings has parents make a note of every argument, no matter how small or large, the typical married couple was having about eight disputes each day, according to the moms. (According to the dads, it was slightly less.)”
― Po Bronson, Ashley Merryman, NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children

“The upshot of Tools is kids who are not merely behaved, but self-organized and self-directed.”
― Po Bronson, Ashley Merryman, NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children

“Indeed, kids who start lying at two or three—or who can control verbal leakage at four or five—do better on other tests of academic prowess. “Lying is related to intelligence,” confirmed Talwar, “but you still have to deal with it.”
― Po Bronson, Ashley Merryman, NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children
