ARMED & MAGICAL

All Raine wants is her life back—which means getting rid of the stone and the power it possesses. To sort things out, she heads for the Isle of Mid, home to the most prestigious sorcery school, as well as the Conclave, the governing body for all magic users. It's also home to power-grubbing mages who want Raine dead and goblins who see her as a thief. As if that's not enough, Mid's best student spellsingers are disappearing left and right, and Raine's expected to find them.

Lives are at stake, goblins are threatening to sue, mages are getting greedier, and the stone's power is getting stronger by the hour. This could get ugly.

I started reading this book on Friday night and finished it last night. I gotta say, Lisa totally sucked me in from the first chapter. Of course, I've read and really enjoyed the first book, so I couldn't wait to see what would happen to Raine this time... especially since we were going to be shown a completely different island.

Wow. It didn't disappoint, that's for sure. I love Raine's voice. It's so casual and witty. She's very stubborn too, even if she knows that a situation might be a little too hard for her to deal with, she's willing to do whatever she can. I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay in the Isle of Mid, even if a bunch of not-so-great things were happening to our heroine and others.

And you know what else? It's just SO much fun! I simply LOVED it and now can't wait for the next adventure. Oh, and did I mention the two possible guys for Raine are simply delish? Tam or Mychael... which one will she ultimately end up with? It's such a hard choice, because... well, they both sound great. ;)

Lisa's created a refreshing fantasy world with awesome characters. If you haven't read this series yet, you should.

I read that book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one.
