it was amazing
bookshelves: ya, library, fiction, fantasy

This book caught my eye at the library with its GORGEOUS cover: the silhouettes stand out starkly against the fairy-tale-ish castle in the background, the 'splashes' of snow and the character's posture and the flow of the clothes do a great job of creating the illusion of movement, and the red foil is a wonderful touch that could easily have been overused, but wasn't.

And... I loved it! What a wonderful surprise.

I think what I liked best about it was that you had a 'chosen one' story without a Marty Stu. With the first half of the final Harry Potter movie just out in theaters, that was something that really resonated with me. Will is a wonderful young man, but despite his gift, he's fairly ordinary, and that was refreshing.

Also - the other characters were well-developed. And the main storyline went about as I thought it would, but the subplots had some interesting twists and turns.
