Overall, I thought that this was a perfectly average YA action series. Though it definitely had its strong points and showed some originality of concept, it followed a lot of the stereotypical themes of the YA genre. The writing was definitely not bad, but it wasn't superb either. The plot was at times refreshingly original, at times stereotypical, and occasionally a bit too much of a stretch. The characters took nearly three books before they became round in any way, but when they did it was pretty satisfying.

In short, while I don't think that these books were bad by any stretch, I definitely do not think that they are worth all of the attention that they have been given. They are perfectly normal YA books, good for a young reader or for a light pleasure read, but nothing more than that.
