4th time editing my review.
This book had some really good parts. The very beginning was set up pretty well, and did make me want to read on. The beginnings of the chapter were also very good. They were like a bit of a sub-story that I found entertaining to read, mainly because it was very different from the main story line.
There were really two big things that I didn't like about this book. One was the characters. I didn't like any of them. I thought that they were all fairly dumb and made irrational choices. I didn't really cared about what happened to them. Another thing about the characters that I didn't like was the fact that some of them had kind of crappy introductions. One of the main characters in particular always bothered me because his introduction was really awkward and didn't set up his part very well.
The other major thing that I didn't like about this book was the plot line. I could tell where the author wanted the story to go for the rest of the series, but the way that he made the story line go felt unnatural and forced.
I will read the next one, because I think that since the story line has been established it'll be better than the first. As for the characters, I guess that I just have to hope that I will learn to like them.
You should also read this persons review as it is mainly a lot of the things that I wished to express but didn't know how.

Libby A book that has likable characters and a flowing plot line.

Bama Libby Barth I felt the same as you about this book, completely.
