The Warlock's Curse

The Warlock's Curse - M.K. Hobson The first half was a charming steam-punk novel with characters that I cared a lot about. The idea of an allergy to magic was very creative. The second half of the novel took a turn and became very dark and sometimes disturbing - more so than I usually enjoy reading about. She's a great writer, and me not liking this books was just a matter of personal taste.
