There are many interesting themes in this story: the thin line between pride and arrogance; the science of alchemy, turning something bad into something good; the need to stand up for yourself and the eternal battle between good and evil, which touches everyone whether they know it or not. Catherine Fisher's writing is rhythmic, and she is good at picking out the small details which draw you in.
An interesting and absorbing book.
