I would give this a 1.5 stars but I'm rounding up. Alright, could have used an editor and some of it seemed as if it was written for the 10 - 12 yrs of age range. Interesting concept not executed as well as it should have been. ( )

I picked it up on a whim, while unnewing books in the YA area. Premise sounded interesting and it turned out to be. It reminded me, a little bit, of Cashore's Graceling series, but not quite as good. I did like it and I'd recommend it to people looking for a book with a strong female main character and those looking for a decent mystery. My favorite character was Jerrit (a talking cat, no really, he was fantastic) and I liked the story well enough. There were a few parts that were far too convenient (though not the solution to the crime, oddly enough), but aside from that, it was a pretty enjoyable read. ( )
