    I picked up this book when I heard the words "Asian" and "fantasy" in one sentence. I've always loved Asian culture, and how very different it is from ours, so I couldn't resist. And I really love how he caught the bar of the culture so well, without the story becoming stale, or feeling like non fiction. I really liked the two main characters - as they are on opposing sites, and Matthews manages to make you cheer for both of them. Depending on what part of the story you're in you will change your opinion of who's the bad guy, or if there really is a bad and a good guy at all. I really enjoyed that, as I hate "all black or white" stories. The writing style was fluid and the plot interesting - and I fully intend to read the next one too sometime later. There were a bit much typos in the story, nothing big, but it did annoy me at times. Also I would have wished for a bit more depth and complexity - and especially a bit more info about the magic used in the book. Though I hope that'll follow oh the later books :) All in all a good four star book that kept me entertained throughout the story!
