Even though, with this book things started off slow and there was a lot to digest I throughly enjoyed it.
I felt the author's take on the world of magic and mystical creatures was an interesting one.
My only complaint was that I felt the story went too quickly and that it could have been expanded and into a longer book. But It's okay, things were quite fast paced mid way.. and I guess this is more of an into to the series.
I liked finding out about what happened to make Donna the way she is, and then there is Xan. I loved him right away and he ended up being important more than one realizes. I liked how he connected to the story, rather than just being just some human boy she encountered.
I loved her friendship with Navin. Finally a good girl/boy friendship that quite possibly won't turn into a love thing.
