It was alright, I guess. It's not often that I read a book where the plot carries the story more than the characters, and where my motivation to continue with the series is centred on figuring out how the plot is going to go. There was a lot of narrative and setting inspiration I could glean from it without there being a fairly solidly built world.

Also? Why would a murderer-for-hire care so much about saving strangers? I didn't find out Calaena's (sp, I don't give a damn how it's spelled) personal ethics or morals in this book, and I think it would have been really important to see that, or at least her own conflict with it (to kill, to not kill, etc.)

I'll be reading the sequel, but this wasn't a stand-out book to me. The beginning grabbed me, but I started to lose focus near the middle and especially near the end.
