Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fresh look at magic. I purchased this book out of desperation looking for something to read during jury duty. Couldn't make up my mind and chose this as it was about magic. Could not have made a better choice!! The story, the characters, and the scenery described sucked me in and didn't let go. I was enjoying this book so much that before I finished it I bought the next book in the series so I wouldn't have to stop. Waiting anxiously (patiently) for book 3 so I can read the conclusion to the story. Trudi Canavan's style and grace caught me and I am looking forward to reading all of her books now.
