The Gallery of Wonders (Magora #1) Mark Remus
I like the idea of the gindars that can paint anything and make it come alive. Magical. As are the horrifying unfinished.
This is similar to Harry Potter. Too similar for me to get really into this. Similarities include: the street that is forbidden, the corridor that is closed to all students, the MSP, the nasty teacher that they suspect of wrongdoing, the bully, hearing voices, the prophecy and so on.
I like the underlying message that this has of believing in yourself. Art cannot be created through what other people expect from you.
