Emily Ann | 6 comments I'm in too!


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments First three chapters complete! Wow, what a start. This world is awful. I'm interested to know why the king hates magic so much, hopefully we'll find out.

I'm up to chapter 4 now. Didn't get much done last night.

This is a powerful start, definitely in a very flawed world. Straight away you can see parallels with our own history, in the way that different races have been treated over the years.

I take it the king hates magic because (view spoiler)

Chapter 3 (view spoiler)


Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments It was awful wasn't it, he's a monster.

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7859 comments Chapter 47 (I'm flying through this because it's so gripping and better than the other YA fantasy I'm currently reading)!

Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3909 comments I just started it and I'm already hooked. This is the fastest a book has hooked me in some time.
