This book is classic Lackey, in that it drew me in immediately and I couldn't put it down. However it's also so new that I'm incredibly excited! ..Show More » The new magic system is great and I can wait to hate the 'folk' more.
I love Joy! She's strong, independent, smart. She still gets flirty with men, but thankfully doesn't loose her head like many heroines. I think I like her integrity best. She reminds me of Honor Harrington (Honor Harrington series by David Weber) and Kel (Protector of the Small by Tamora Pierce).
The audible is great. Amy Landon brought this so thoroughly to life that it was like Joy in my ear telling her story as I was transported to her world.
