D The book reads well and it's easy to assimilate to the main character in one way or another. I realize it is targeted for the 10-14 crowd but I still enjoyed reading it on my day off (yes you can read it for dessert). However be forewarned that the next novel is not written yet...if you were looking for a series...
Lila Yes this book is so good! I would recommend it to a lot of people. If you like books with magic, this is a good read for you.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[It is really good, I own it and I've read it about six times. I swear it's like a twisted version of Harry Potter, where Harry turns out to be Lord Voldermort! I mean... YEAH it's great!! Call, is total not the Enemy of Death, he has his own soul, it wasn't crushed and replaced by EOD. :) I DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING!! (hide spoiler)]
