'A picture is worth a thousand words' but in this book the words create over a thousand pictures. You'll never forget.
This group of books is interesting because it breaks away from the stereotypical depiction of magicians as omnipotent and shows them as normal people with another type of talent, which has its limits. Some of the time it is hard to follow what is going on but it all comes together eventually I think Irene does this intentionally. I would recommend this to any sci/fi fantasy junkie.
I love this book.. It wil lbe added to my ever growing collection of Fantasy/Sci. This is truly a capturing story and I look forward to continuing it in the next books.
