Warning: This review contains spoilers
Spoiler space. This is to keep the spoilers away from the people who want to avoid reading them. I really wish goodreads would find a way to hide spoilers under some kind of cut so I wouldn't have to ramble on like this. But ramble on I must until they come up with something to hide spoilers.
I enjoyed the book. I was glad Xiao Yen didn't give up her magic. I've found that in books where a female has great power there's a tendency for her to give up her power to be normal and/or have a family which always annoyed me because the men rarely do the same thing.
