There's nothing I can really say is wrong with this book. It's expertly written with a diverse range of characters and an interesting plot. I did find though, I didn't really identify with Auraya. It was one of those cases where she was nice enough but I didn't really warm to her, though I didn't enjoy several of the other (I won't call them lesser) characters. There were lots to choose from and some were a lot of fun.
In my opinion it doesn't hold a candle to her Black Magician trilogy/world, but was an enjoyable read all the same.
