I am an admirer of Ms Boler's fiction, so although this book is not in a genre I would normally read, I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The main character, Memphis Zhang, is engaging and always interesting, and I liked leaning about her magickal powers and her enchanting family as the book progressed. The story kept me reading to find out how things would turn out. Ms Boler has created a world very much like ours, but different enough to keep her readers entertained and entranced.
