The story is very well written, compelling, and exciting enough to make it very difficult to put down. Katsa, along with other characters, grows so strongly and believably as a person over the course of the story. It has a very satisfying conclusion, and yet I want to know more of these characters and their lives. The sense of danger and peril is real, the characters' pains and joys are relatable despite the fantastic setting... it's a good book.
