I enjoyed this book a lot. The plot is original and keeps you on your toes. The character are so so real and have a way of connecting with you. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes anything magic related and/or something that is witty and adventurous. Being neither a boy or girl book this is for the reader who loves to read.
