This is one of the best books have read yet this year! And that's saying something because I have read a lot of awesome books this year! The setting was awesome, the plot worked, the characters were wonderfully fleshed out, and the romance was believable (aka not that instalove crap that has become popular recently). I finished it in one sitting, it was so good. Not only that but I turned around and read it again. Even more awesome the second time around! The only bad thing is that the second book doesn't come out till next year! I'm not sure I can last that long to find out what happens next!
