really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy

This was a fun, easy read.

The Good: A very readable book with a lot of typical fantasy standbys plus an interesting new creature to add to the mix. And without spoiling things, the female heroine lived up to the title of heroine wonderfully at the book's climax.

The Bad: I am definitely a fan of fewer points of view (one is my favorite). This book was done in multiple first person with at least four characters' viewpoints. It was written well, but I felt that as a result, I really didn't get to know the main two until near the end of the book.

The story, description, characters, and action improved as the story went along and really peaked at the end. This speaks well for Odette's future as a writer and for the future books in the series.
