This book broke my heart. I was at first completely hooked: in the beginning, middle and almost to the last few minutes of the narration, you're truly enjoying the story, and then wham! Everything goes horribly wrong so quickly and you're left wondering, what?? It hurts, because this story has it all: there's action, romance, humor, tragedy, mystery and magic. The main character is likeable, for once you get a strong female lead who doesn't wimp out easily, while she's also a real girl with real insecurities. Now, I understand that the writer might be trying to prove a point at the end: how an impulsive, desperate move might change your life completely, and maybe how courage can't make up for inexperience when one's opponent is someone much older and powerful. But the lesson is brutally learned, in my opinion, and although there were hints all along that something bad will happen, it still took me completely by surprise by its harshness. Mostly, the cliff-hanger left me with a frustrating, uncomfortable feeling that was completely out of tune with the rest of the story, which is too bad, because the majority of the book is very enjoyable and well written.

An interesting story of magic users and abusers running through a maze of character uncertainties.
