This compilation of the trilogy is a good new style of the known : "Magic is forbidden except for..." I loved the way the abberents were made alive by their characters, loved especially the main character and Cailin. This is a good, action and magic book that twist around you and leaves you wondering where you did not see this coming.I loved every page of it.
