IMO it's more enjoyable & better written than most YA fantasy stuff these days, & the main characters (except Akiva
) are generally likable & interesting if you don't mind a little wish fulfillment. I personally like Karou's life & art in Prague more than the war stories in secondary world & the Romeo & Juliet style love story. The ending is promising though. OTHO, if you have issue w/ Edward/Bella relationship you might have issue w/ the romance in this book also.
