I picked this one up, after one of the later volumes caught my eye. While I didn't love this one, it did keep me reading, and I will be getting the next book when I go back to the library. This is an unusual story, and as its just starting, I'm really not sure what its about, or even what I think of it. The plot was interesting, if somewhat mysterious, and the characters were well written. I am interested to see what happens, and to continue with this series. Hopefully I will have more of an idea as to what's happening, and a better review then.
