Lu Michelini I thought the writing is subpar, but you'll still get addicted to it and turn pages. The ending is quite upsetting, though.
Anya I personally really liked it. Its a fantasy YA book, with a darker feel to it. it has adventure, traveling, magic, and Russian themes to it. I preferred the second book(Its the best in the series, but still enjoyed this one)
I do, however, do not like the ending. It felt a little cliché and didn't move me as much as I was hoping...;(
But overall, YES it was amazing. Not perfect, but amazing. The characters all undergo changes and inner character arcs, and are more intriguing by the page. You should read it.
