Despite a few rewrites in this edition, it’s essentially a first novel and suffers from some of the flaws inherent to that. Despite some of the darker elements, it reads much like a young adult novel with all the requisite elements of a YA fantasy. Which is not to say that it’s not a pretty good read and quite fun. The characters are, as is the case with Briggs’ work, the strongest elements and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel. I found the types of magic to be well-done and the differentiations to be consistent and interesting.
