I finished this a couple weeks ago. Bought it today... not the usual order for me lol. Actually I had wanted to read this for a long time - an acclaimed fantasy that I hadn't read before - and I thought I owned it. Turns out I had Darkspell (book 2), oops. So I read this one from the library, and really liked it. Always a good sign when I want my own copy of one I read from the library.
