it was very good, most of all i loved the world the story was set, it was so well constructed, so real, and it was beautifully revealed, there wasn't a chapter or even a paragraph that explained how things went in this world or what things meant. they were just part of the story and you got to know them and probably make your own stories about it. the only problem was maybe that you wanted more stories by mckinley and i am hoping there would be more, more of mirasol, but also more of the other parts, maybe the town where the overlord is. it's the same with the ending, from the writing point of view, i thought that it was the perfect ending, and yet from my greedy self point of view i definitely want more. so alot of my unrest with this book was that is was so wonderfully told that i wanted more and am unhappy with just one book and one story!!
p.s. and thanks so much for the book pusher, i've never regretted any of her book pushing/suggestions!! :)
