I decided to get a copy of this a little while ago, after seeing it around so often and seeing so many positive reviews of it. I can happily say I'm very pleased with my purchase! This short book is heaps of fun and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
The pacing in this was perfect. Didn't go too quickly, didn't drag on for hours. Everything was revealed at the right moments and the romance wasn't too intrusive either! I did find one element a little steretypical but I still enoyed it all the same.
The story is really unique, at the same time as feeling comfortingly familiar. I love books with lots of magic and castles and this really hit the spot in that aspect. I had a lot of the other covers and WOW! When I finish this series I'll be looking out for more books by Megg for sure.
