I thought this was going to to be solely about someone stuck in a well, and his struggle to free himself. I was wrong. This is the start of the novel, but there is so much more to it than that, which was a nice surprise.

The pace was good and suitable; time dragging slowly in the well, for instance, and the pace faster above ground. The characters are well drawn, and multi-layered, especially Chris, and there is plenty of mystery and unanswered questions to prompt me to download the next instalme

Vincent was abandoned by his mother when he was little. She left him on the doorstep of her parent's house. He has been raised by his grandparents whom he deeply loves.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I didn't notice that it was slow at the beginning. Maybe it was, but it was still interesting. I'm still trying to figure out if there are sequels to this book. I thought I read somewhere that there were but I can't seem to figure out where/what they are.

I don't care for stories that end before they are done, and the reader must buy a sequel to find out more. Other than that the story was good. The scene in the well was full of great detail. There were spelling mistakes.

Couldn't put this book down. Very exciting.....and then the end just leaves you hanging. Last 2 chapters really took a turn. Did not care for how the book ended, but the rest of the book was good.
