Book Recommendation: "The Spirit Thief" by Rachel Aaron

The Spirit Thief is the kind of book for people who like their fantasy “fun.” Most second-world fantasy is very heavy and dark, but The Spirit Thief is an exception—it’s more light-hearted than most books, but the characters and plot are still interesting enough to make for an enjoyable read. The world-building is also very unique. Magic works through “spirits,” who inhabit every creature and object. Unfortunately, the uniqueness of this magic system is also a deterrent to the book, as it results in a lot of info-dumps.

The relative lightness of this book means it’s not quite memorable enough to fall onto my “favorites” list, but I enjoyed reading it and I’ve already bought the sequel.
