WonderfulThis is a new author for me and I loved this book I read it in one setting and enjoyed it so much My only gripe is the next book is not out yet I hate waiting I also returned it and then bought it I am not giving up this book It is mine A decent beginning of the series The writing style wasn t consistent but I liked the characters it has potential.
