A brilliant exploration of the interaction between human morality and inhuman power, and by extension, the effect human concepts of good and evil can have on inhuman magic place

very interesting and unique base, I felt this book had TONS of potential if the characters weren't so cliché - seems as if the author has a huge crush on the main female character, descriptions of her were pretty cheesy after a while. could have been a great book with more focus on how our internal thoughts, fears and desires affect our outside world, which in turn affects us.

i agree with you, the female character being the "turn-off" for me, i didnt finish the book because of her.
