The Inquisitors Apprentice has the perfect characters, the perfect setting, and great development! This is one of my favorite books, and certainly my favorite Fresh Ink title. Sacha is so likable and I almost blew up in suspense in some of the parts. I completely relate to Sacha, my dad making terrible jokes during the blessings at Chanukah and just being Jewish in general (although luckily I'm in a much better situation than them). The only suggestion I would make about this book is to put a glossary for all the words in Hebrew.
