By all accounts, it's also a beautiful book to behold and to hold in your hands, a book-as-artefact to caress and cuddle and name George if the mood suits you.
cynleitichsmith has posted a great interview with SarahP that explains a bit about the genesis and world of the book, and makes me want to get back to work on my own novel.
And HarperCollins has set up a highly interactive microsite for The Magic Thief that is an incredible amount of fun. (I turned out to be a raven in the Embero Spell Game.)
I'm not sure when the book will be arriving in Singapore, but I'll be snagging a copy when it does.
Yay and w00t and huzzah for SarahP!
