I enjoy Mercedes Lackey and this was a good read, quick and light. But, really guys, it should have been called Young Adult.

I am a fan of the Valdemar books, but I gave this one a lower rating as I just don't care much for Amity and Mags. The story isn't one of the better plotted ones, it takes a lot from Romeo and Juliet and is very similar to many of the previous Valdemar books. An ok read but not great.

It is a good book. Strange how it is now a new series when it picks up seconds after Bastion ends but whatever. I really like the development of Amily and the villain - although their are parts when you wonder if she hasn't copied from the story of "Romeo and Juliet" a little too much.
