VOYAThis novel has magic, intrigue, adventure, and challenge. Its has all of the needed components to be a run-of-the-mill fantasy book, yet it is unique because it is more well written than others in its genre. The characters at times keep your interest in the book more than the plot, and you keep reading to try to figure out what happens to them. Though the twists and "surprises" in the story can be figured out and the ending is as clichTd as expected, it doesn't seem sappy.
