I didn't read the intro, so it wasn't until after I'd finished the second book that I discovered the author had written this in her teens. Her mature work, either under her own name or as T. Kingfisher, is spectacular and identifiable as hers. That easy identification is the only thing missing here, but all the other things I love about Vernon's work are present.
I highly recommend this two book series.
The good: Sadrao is a joy.
The bad: Lyra, like many teenaged protagonist characters, falls into the common first-novel trap of having too many skills, of moving too far from where she begins too quickly. Her character arc suffers for this, I think, as do her relationships to the other characters.
-The love subplot. It is extremely perfunctory, and does not feel well developed. I know that this author can write wonderful, heartwarming love stories now, but this first one is... boring. Like dry white toast.
So... Yeah. Read *Summer in Orcus* instead. That book is amazing.
