Solid enough first entry into the series, at the time of writing this I am almost done with the fourth book and I feel like any of the issues that you notice in this one just seem to get worse as you go along and established reasons for things seemed to have changed to suit the writers needs.
I was hooked from the first book and now I can't stop. This book has everthing you want - magic, action, mystery, a hint of romance. Bell Forrest is a fantasticlly creative author and I cannot wit to read the rest!!!
