I like the world that we are introduced to in this book. The magic is interesting, no one in omnipotent, everyone has a weakness, some of the characters hold on to them stubbornly.
There are quite a few sex scenes, and that can put some people off, but they are written well and encourage a message of mutual consent and safe sex. This book is not all sex scenes, so not to worry.
I guess my only concern is even in this freshly built universe, it seems to be happy to set itself up for the "trilogy" that so many books/ ideas / authors are moving toward. Maybe a bit predictable.
