The cover. It is weird. But the story. It is good.I really enjoyed this. It's fantasy and light and sweet, but Marcus isn't a complete doormat or useless ingenue. And boy, does he undergo a hero's journey. My one complaint is the secondary characters seem rather underdeveloped at times, but not horribly so. It could just be that I either wasn't paying attention or had different expectations, which changed the way I viewed them.
