really liked it
Read from February 03 to March 14, 2011

A very good introduction to a well-established world. However it does only scratch the surface of the world. It is good in the sense that it makes me love the protagonist and hate the antagonist while it makes me wonder if the main POV would be the other character, you would treat him as the protagonist and the other one the antagonist. Just like in real life...
It is a really good (but not excepcional) urban fantasy where nothing ever happens. OSC is a brilliant writer and I really recommend this one as it is sure it has a great potential and the next one will be a really really good book.

56.0% "It was a bit boring at the first 100 pages, but provided a great introduction for the world. I fear it will be too detailed at the begining and it will end mid-story. Slightly resembles to Alvin Maker Book 1, similar setting, similar storytelling. It is a bit even better than Alvin."
