It was SO AMAZING!
If a book can take me to new worlds while making me laugh, thrill, surprise and fall in love with the story and characters, It's a successful one for me.
This one had all that and more!

The truths revealed and the ending were really unexpected and it left me wanting for more, I can't wait for the 2nd book!

Just ended up reading it for the 3rd time and this book still has the power to leave me speechless and overwhelmed with all kinds of emotions.

"I do," Zuzana agreed. "I swear I hate more poeple every day. Everyone annoys me. If I'm like this now, what am I going to be like when I'm old?"
"You'll be the mean old biddy who fires a BB gun at kids from her balcony."
"Nah. BBs just rile 'em up. More like a crossbow. Or a bazooka.”
