The magical world depicted here is fun and fresh and much more diverse than you would expect if this was just another mediocre Potterverse knock off. It features a decent amount of sex of the m/f variety, and I didn't even skim it, like I usually do. Be warned though, that in the books ahead there will also be m/m sex (and m/f/f and m/m/f/f) and if that is not something you're willing to delve into, maybe best not to start this series at all. You'd be losing out, though, because this one of the best magic-in-the-modern-world-books (with sex) out there.
The one star I knocked off is for the less-than-stellar start of the book and the ease with which our teen protagonist handles his emotional ups and downs without getting all emo on the reader. Not that I am a huge fan of emo teens, but Kyle was just a little too accepting to be completely realistic.
Four rather than five because, while I most likely will continue the series... I do not feel compelled to finish.
In my view when I finish a five star book, I must purchase the next book right right away.... Right now, I feel like ok, I pick up the next one to see what happens, but will wait awhile.
I think the poetry got to me.... Meaning did not really care for it.... Hey you if it is your thing ... Then go for it.... But it might just be the part that makes me say it is not five star....
Such a great start and a very strong sense of place.
Lucky for me, I find these characters quite a bit more interesting than the Magicians opener episode.
In particular, the female characters are fascinatingly complex and varied.

Good sign when the erotica can be left out and it's still a great story.
