    1. I got this as part of a $1 fantasy book bundle on , which mostly contains books by newer/upcoming authors in the genre. Some of them seem kind of crap - I started two different ones and gave up after the first chapter of each - but this one was pretty decent. The basic story is pretty standard fantasy fare - an ancient evil is unleashed, an unlikely hero goes on a quest to stop it, has adventures along the way, etc. What makes this novel somewhat unique is that everything is centered around mask [...]

    2. This book was absolutely a bright spot in FIERCE (16 authors of fantasy). i want more of it, and there's only one other author in the anthology who did that.

    3. At a time when a lot of fantasy feels anachronistically and annoyingly modern, this one felt much more grounded in another time and place. The magic system really shapes the culture and assumptions of the characters. The narrative voice and dialogue both feel a step removed from the rhythms of modern English--without being distracting, they help you step into another world. Webb weaves a fine fable there. It's a good wisdom tale to relate around a fire on a quiet night.

    4. This one surprised me. The story is told with a very "storyteller" sort of voice, which actually fit really well. The whole magic system is absolutely fascinating and different than anything I've seen before. There are times you want to yell at the protagonist (especially at the beginning), but he is a teenager. And a piece of the final wrap up is a bit simple but it's still really engaging and enjoyable.
