What can I say that haven't been said already?. I love this world full of adventures, interesting characters and a great story that will keep you turning pages until you finish it. Left me wondering about a lot of details that, I assume, will be revealed later on in the next book, or the next, or the next?

Plus, if you are like me and appreciate extra content from your favorite stories (same feeling as when finding easter eggs or cameos), then you wont be disappointment ;)


Love this book. One of the first books I remember reading and falling in love with the characters the world right at the start. It is a great start to a series.
