Engaging, but repetitive. If you've just finished Harry Potter, DON'T read this, because the similarities will annoy you. It's actually a decent book, just not that original. Seventh son of a seventh son plot (there must be something truly magical about that, because I see that theme a lot), unknown hero, witches,boggarts, evil things. Fun, but you've read it before. If, however, it's that kind of thing you've read before but can't get enough of,definitely check this book out! It's followed by Flyte and Physik.
