So, first of all, disregard the "3-star" rating.
You should read this book. You should start this series.
Because I have yet to be disappointed by any of these books (currently up to the 6th!). Because I have a deep love for the characters in these books. Because I have stalked the sites for every short that's available for this series and devoured them all. Because I've yet to find another UF series that has this amount of fantastic worldbuilding, character development, relationship development and general kick-ass awesomeness as this one.
So thanks to Maggie's review
for catching my interest and getting me to take the plunge.
