I wasn't sure if I was going to love this book at first, I found the first chapter, maybe chapter and a half, was a little slow for my taste, but once I start something, I have to finish it and I am so glad I did. I ended up really loving this book. Maevan has a great story arc, but this book is about more than just her. The story is told by the points of view of many interesting characters. I read the second book in the series, which I didn't see listed on this site, and I liked that one even more. Sadly, book 3 isn't out yet. I know when it does come out, I'll read it for sure.
