The Sons of Thestian (The Harmatia Cycle: Book 1) is a brilliant YA Fantasy novel written by the wonderfully talented M.E. Vaughan and I'm still reading it. It's taking me way too long to finish it but that's my fault - nothing to do with the book, though it is long - and that's just how I like them.
