Wow. Just wow. I sat there and devoured the excerpt. The prose. Andra's voice. The setting. The plot. All of it was awesome. Now I had heard that this book was quite popular and I can completely understand why. Even my one complaint, how Zhade spoke English, or as he refers to "High Goddess" which is honestly such a badass name, was addressed! Also, the cover with the contrasting cool and hot tones just makes it pop!
