I had been seeing positive reviews about this for a while and I finally decided to see what all of the fuss was about. Well, turns out the reviews were right! I really enjoyed this book. The heroine, Channie, is a strong character, but she also has some vulnerabilities. It made her easy to relate to and root for. The magical aspect was great. I liked that Channie already knew about magic and that her navigating its use among non-magical humans created complications for her. Overall, this was a fast and lovely read. I will definitely be reading more by Charlotte Abel.
Also, as an added bonus, I went and checked out Charlotte's blog and it says the next book in the series, Empty, is coming out any day now! Exciting!
