I got this in the giveaway and so it was my first time reading a Landover novel (I feel so out of the loop) but was pleased to find it is very much a stand alone novel.
It's a great fantasy novel with a quick story, exelent writing, and interesting characters. Mistaya may be a little immature at times, but she is only 15 and I found it very believable. This made her all the more enjoyable because she was real
A great book and I'm sure I'll find it's an even greater series.
