This story put me in mind of Aladdin for some reason. Even if our main character is a fifteen year old girl named Hitomi. She's different than the other humans on the island where she lives. A fact that's pointed out to her daily by the locals.
I find maybe two small really unnoticeable errors in the entire work and neither one even caused me to pause in the read.
This book has a ton of action from chases across rooftops, to fighting and being chased by mages, vampires, and beings called breathers. The reader will find no slow points in this adventure, and will even have a chuckle or two along the way.
I wait expenctantly for book 2 now that I've had a taste for Hitomi and her adventure I definitely want more.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
