Nice review. I definitely want to check this one out now.

I appreciate that you discussed the issue of whether this was a "run-of-the-mill" fantasy, since as you said it includes many classic fantasy tropes. Classic fantasy has almost gotten a bad rap these days as being overdone or unimaginative, but as you point out, what's important is whether or not it's a good and inventive story. If a book is well-written and has true creativity, the presence of classical elements won't automatically make it cliche.
