I really liked this book.

This is my first actual sit down and read by this author! Plus the fact that this is a new author for me , I will stress that I am impressed.

This series has been one of the most enjoyable i have read in a long time. Tracy Cooper-Posey you are a brilliant author. I'm sad that I'm about to read the final book. Keep up the wonderful work you are doing and on to the next book. ...more
