Convince us to read the book: I really loved the descriptions and character development. The point of view made me want to keep reading, too. However, there was a plot twist which left me quite disappointed, and I kept wanting it to fix itself and it didn't. I thought it kind of messed up the entire book.
Memorable or Forgettable: It had a very imaginative and creative setting, and it was filled with detail.
Cover: Yes. It depicted a main symbol from the book, a dagger. I was more interested by the author (I read another of her books) than the artwork, though.

Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 5P Everyone wants to read it
Additional CommentsAlthough I marked 4Q, you will probably be disappointed and let down at the end.
