A fun fiction read. Kind of a cross between the Hunger Games and Lord of the Flies.
I liked the creativity, the lack of inappropriate material, and the suspense. I didn't like that the author kept the reader in the dark for so long. You're guessing what is happening the whole time, and the result is you're not sure which details to focus on.
I liked it enough that I'll probably borrow the next from the library.

Ryan I felt the same away about this one. Like it, and I've read the next one too. I'm in the middle of the last one. The one thing I couldn't stand was that as soon as you think you're going to get an answer to a question, the cliche thing happens over, and over, and over, and over, and over again--someone comes in and interrupts the conversation or they say "I'll tell you later." It killed some of the suspense for me. But still good enough to keep reading the series.
