Again, read this when I was a kid, like 7 years back. Actually I never finished with this one for some reason. But I remember it being nice. Maybe some years from now, I'll go back to these again. :) Hehe :P

if you are a fan you will like it, but otherwise, it depends what kind of books you like, at the beggining it is a little weird... But, the ending is pretty cool.
