Slowly making my way through this series and so far it hasn’t disappointed. As always I’m loving the characters and the magic but I noticed something that I really like about this series after reading this one. What I realized is that to me this series toes the line perfectly between being considered an adult fantasy book and a YA fantasy. It has that feeling that it could be a great book for all ages, which I love. Another thing that I’m a big fan of is Chance being the type of character that both does it on his own but also uses any help he can get. It always leads to the bad guy being fucked because they don’t expect the MC to bring help which is always entertaining.
While I’m loving this series so far there was one thing that annoyed me in this book. That, of course, is my disappointment that Winthrop didn’t stay a massive douche the whole time! I was looking forward to having that one character who’s a douche but not an asshole(there’s a difference). You know, the type of character that everyone loves to hate but still doesn’t want to see die? That’s what I was hoping Winthrop was going to be, but sadly he had to go and be a semi-decent person. But in all seriousness, I give this book an 8 out of 10 and I can’t wait to see what else happens, especially when Chance goes to magic school.
