Cain and his friends have snappy dialogue and a lot of attitude. It's overdone at times but it's effective at establishing the tone. You can tell Cain and his buddies have been close for a long time.
A sport called “shotball” is prominently featured, and I guess it’s like Aussie rules football, or rugby, but I’m not entirely sure. The shotball games are quite thrilling if you’re into sports.
The main characters use elemental magic against an oppressive empire as it threatens civilians and invades territory. The magic is not explained, but it’s not something I missed, as there was plenty to wrap my head around along the revolution, Cain's unfolding back story, and the shotball games. The battles flow with a kinetic energy, like the shotball games.
The university setting, magic, and shotball focus reminded me of Harry Potter, but with a young adult twist.
Two things I found distracting is the writer appropriates a common slur for policemen to refer to empirical shock troops. The term is not used as frequently once Cain and his friends reach university. Another thing was Cain has a character flaw in that he is very quick to resort to fisticuffs. He goes so far as to assault innocent people, but he never faces a setback or is disciplined for it. The older mentor character actually enables him in this respect, and I found this to be unbelievable from an adult perspective.
The book leaves enough loose ends to be resolved in a sequel.
