Shelves: boring
Although I am still currently reading this, it seems to be on a slow start so far. She seems to have a worship place made out of an old shack.. I can also understand that someone cut her head open, as she finds's out when some guys shave her head (not very creative) It dosn't seem that interesting at the moment, besides the mysterious gang that was after her, and her praying nothing seems to be happening.. but obviously someone thought this book was good-someone published it after all, so perhap ...more

This was a really fun read and I remember really wanting to read the next book, of course this only just out in Hardcover so I lost track of it. Which is why I hardly ever read book one of a series when it first comes out. I will have to reread and check out the rest of the series.
