4.5Holy shit.Strong, inspirational, full of hope. It made me sad that it ended. There just has to be more.What is it with fiction that makes me rebel against set systems and want them to change/be destroyed? For almost every world built in the last 50 or something books. Again. And again. Even knowing a perfect world is not possible (and boring as heaven) doesn't stop me from thinking that the exact order is wrong and needs changing.Whatever. My rambling stops here.Highly recommended.ETA: It wasn’t even probing so much as familiar...“Mysterious stranger, yet familiar. No wonder I’m intrigued.”It didn’t hurt that he was attractive and looked exceedingly familiar.Is there something there or am I being too paranoid?
