Oh my goodness. Get past the first few chapters. Nothing is as you'd think when you first start reading this. This book gets better and better as the plot goes on. I love how tangled the plotline gets. At first I thought some of the characters where a little too archetypal at the beginning, but it starts to make more sense later on. I also love the way the author explores the different sides of villain's character later on, that said I can't say anything or I'll spoil a huge part of it. Reminded me of little bit of a mix between Harry Potter and X-men, in the way each student had their own "gift". This book portrays the importance of integrity and shows the extreme dangers of getting obsessed with power. So much I want to say about what I loved about it, but not wanting to spoil it The plotline leading up to the end is really well woven together, although I found the very last part at the end up bit cheesy, that said, at least four stars and well worth the read!!
