I tried to read this book. I wanted to like it. I found myself avoiding it and trying to justify continuing, and I just couldn't. The characters didn't engage me at all. I just don't care about Jolie or Rand.
So as far as I got? (1/3 of the way)... Jolie is a witch, she didn't know she was one, but stumbled into the paranormal world and discovered that all of those magical creatures were real. There's some sort of turf war/animosity between Rand (the guy that discovered her and took her on a a trainee) and some other Witch. I'm sure there was some sort of resolution to that, but I couldn't make myself care. Oh well. It wasn't bad or anything, I just wasn't engaged.
