Rating: well. More like 4.5 stars, probably, but rounded up, as - all things considered - this was a pretty awesome book. And so
much better - so much more
- than any blurb or description made me expect.
I was (and still am) intrigued by the plot, but it was the characters, and their interactions, that really made this book for me. I'm eagerly awaiting the next one!
ETA 20.09.2013: removing a star. I can barely remember the book, so in hindsight, I don't think I liked it that
much. Five star books are strictly those that stay with me.
