Captivating!

The author wove a tail that pulled you in, quickly brought you up to speed with the characters, as if old friends. With the turn of each page the movie reel in your heads plays along.

Looking forward to the next book!

Probably more aimed at tweens and teens. Should be an enjoyable series.
