I list this book as ADULT READING.
Definitely different. I was intrigued by the idea that mathematics was the core of the power and magic, but I’m still out on whether I actually liked the book. It was slow, but it’s book one in a series and book two hasn’t published. I have nothing to help judge whether the writer lacks or if book one was just slow in establishing the foundation for the rest of a great series. Time will tell.
