Michael Gruber: The Book of Air and Shadows
I picked this one up cheap at a Borders before Christmas and my husband gave it to me as a gift along with another one. He was disappointed when I kept going to the library for new books without reading the ones he had given me so I finally cracked it open.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It has a great mix of character development and thrilling action. Plus, it's all about Shakespeare and lost manuscripts. It has a bit more adult content and language than I usually prefer but I got really attached to a couple of the characters so I kept going. By the end I really didn't like the main character, which was weird for me, but was satisfied with the story nonetheless.
In conclusion, it was definitely worth the couple of bucks I paid for it and the couple of days I spent reading.
