I enjoyed it but it totally grab me, I guess. Similar to Magic or Madness, it involves people with magical powers that are a bit outside the normal (read: comic book/superhero-y) range of magical powers. So I liked that. But then everyone uses their powers in subtle ways or not at all, and I guess I like to see powers used for destruction and revenge. But that's not what this book is about, and if they did act like that, it wouldn't be a metaphor anymore, would it.
