Personally, I thought this book was overall just plain awful.I thought the characters were dull and forgettable, the main character, Mauve, cared more about a possibly dead Spaniard than the actual story,and Tom, the main villain,showed some promise at the beginning, but by the end he was just plain annoying. I thought the plot itself was lame and didn't keep readers engaged the way it should. This book was to rush at all the important parts and lingered to long on the boring insignificant parts. The author wrapped up the climax in less than ten pages and i don't remember most of it, but the whole first half of the book was concentrated on the Mauve's whinny problems. The end left the reader with to many unanswered questions, but even if there is was a sequel answering them, i would not read it. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
