This was one of those Barnes & Noble purchases where I had no knowledge of the book and was just intrigued by the cover. I took a risk and it was a favorable one. Now, this isn't for everyone. If you don't like fantasy fiction, it is not for you. However, if you like books with a little magic here and there, this is a new series and I liked it. I will be reading the 2nd one when it is released in September and of course, this one leaves you where you WANT to read the 2nd one.
