Crazy Cat Lady
Sorry but I somehow I missed your post, it was during the week where 4 days out of 5 I left at 6 in the morning and got home at 10 at night. I didn't like it at all and think I rated it 2 out of 5. Not sure if I read it in order but I assumed Patternmaster would be the first book in the Patternmaster series. But she didn't explain how the "magic" worked at all and she didn't really explain why they were fighting with the other group. The explanation of the inter group fighting made since but the rest didn't. It is a pretty high rated series though so I am in the minority.
