    A wonderfully different take on the fantasy genre, though you could almost take it as science fiction if not for the magic Sigils that let certain people walk into alternate dimensions.One of my favorite things about this book is that it features a protagonist who actually thinks about her situation and comes up with a sensible plan to survive, understand and profit rather than bouncing aimlessly fr
