Ahh I'm so happy she has a series that I enjoy again! Raven Ring is perhaps one of my top 5 favorite books OF ALL TIME but I haven't loved anything else she's done very much (Mairelon the Magician is ok but I'm not so inclined to read the follow ups). But this is a really interesting series that takes a magic family to the frontier to kind of escape from the ridicule their thirteenth (unlucky) child Eff was receiving. Lots of fun world building and talks of different magical philosophies. Ordered the 2nd book for this one as well but I am a bit more excited for this rather than the Kate Daniels book!
