What a wild unexpected ride this book provided! We all know there are a gazillion good books available right now (what a wonderful time to be a reader!) So choosing the next book to read becomes a bit difficult; let me help you out - This is the next book you should pick up. I grabbed this book at the last minute and I'm so very thankful I did. There are many things to love about this book, but two of the big ones are Ash and Lyre. Oh my, my, my did the author give us a wonderful Christmas present when she conceived of these two daemons. At the beginning I was afraid the main character might get a little lost among these two, but the author did a fine job of having her hold her own ground.
I don't like to give too much of the actual story away, but this is a fast paced magical thriller with a little bit of the oh, la la thrown in. The characters are well developed and you truly want to know them by the end of this book. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, it was that good.
