I liked the world building, and the characters were interesting. My main gripe with this novel is that after going to the trouble to build up an intriguing plot, the author winds up solving everything by just tossing aside the rules of the first 2/3 of the story, making the hero and heroine super-powered, and fixing everything like 'ta-da, Magic!'
Still, the world of Crosspointe was interesting, and I plan to give the next one a chance to be better.
I enjoyed this story and the narration. The characters are relatable with human strengths an failings. It is a nice blend of Magic, adventure and adversity.
