Not great. It was a chore getting through it. I read another book from the author that was better, so I was not impressed or satisfied with this read.

I've read this book once before and thought it was great so now since the second book has come out I am deciding to read it again. I hope that the second book is as good as this one... Okay I finally finished the book for the second time though it took me what seems like forever I finally completed it and if I do say so myself it was just as good as the first time... ...more
