I was hooked by the second chapter. Absolutely loved the characters and the storyline. Like other reviewers I also wish it was 1 or 2 chapters longer, but overall a great book.

Im nota huge book critic. I enjoy just about anything that holds my attention long enough to finish. This book was pretty good. It contained all the characteristics of what I love in a good read. Action, decent character development, and some depth which keeps one wanting to know more. Overall I recommend.

Good book. Some of the character's emotional reactions are over the top and unrealistic, but it's interesting and worth a listen.
