The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Unfortunately very meh on rereading. I've moved on to the original trilogy and am relieved to find that's still excellent. It's weird; you'd think the prequel would have better world-building and a more sensible magic system than the original. I'm honestly wondering if Stroud wrote it. It feels like a shallow reflection of the original trilogy.
