Surprisingly gripping read. The inventiveness of the alternate world was really well done. I liked the ending, and am glad to have read the book.

This was a fun story that became progressively more exciting and interesting the further I read and the more I let myself get drawn into plot--the more I accepted the world, characters, and story for what they were and just went with it. Unfortunately, doing so meant overlooking the fact that it was obvious from the writing that Flavin's background is not in writing. I had as much trouble believing these characters, their motivations, reactions, and dialogue, and basic plot points could possibly exist as I did believing in the magic. Once I let that go and just went with the story I enjoyed myself, but there is much room for improvement.
