Finished today! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I like books about magic - it's interesting (after I've read tons of them) to see how authors create their systems of magic and magical creatures. This magical world was different enough to feel original. I love the perspective from the non-magical male character....it also contributed a lot to the feeling that you are reading something original - not copy-cat (well, not too copy-cat).

I guess we should stay away from spoilers....but what did you think of the Winter Formal scene?
