This one caught me by surprise. I was using it unceremoniously as a filler book until another book I was waiting for came out. I didn't even think I'd finish it in time but I blitzed through it unable to put it down and am now torn between reading the book I was waiting for or picking up Shadowblack. It's the kind of bittersweet conundrum I hope for.
It's a fun and entertaining mess of love, hatred, friendship, betrayal, magic and squirrel cats. Nothing complex or overwhelmingly stupid. Plot reveals are timed nicely some with nifty twists and the pacing is swift and smooth.
For the audio fans: Joe Jameson. No need to say anymore other than brilliant as always.
The cover (UK/AU): Love this cover. It's unique, precisely executed and completely relevant to the story. Nailed it. Full marks from me and right up there with some of my all time favourites.
In short: Readers looking for something fun, light and just plain entertaining will love it. Extra marks because it also looks so handsome on the shelf.
