Filled with beautiful descriptions and an array of diverse characters, this was a thoroughly original idea for a novel. Unfortunately, some of the characters felt a bit one note and fell into some YA lit stereotypes so it became a bit predictable. Even with that flaw, I would still be interested to see what happens to several of the characters in book 2.
