really liked it

As always there is action from the word go. I did however feel a bit disappointed nearing the end of the first half - it felt to me almost as if a ghost writer had taken over, or the editing was a bit rushed, there were many repetitive phrases that annoyed me - like looking through eyelashes. In fact I struggled to continue reading - but I continued because of the brilliant story and the plot that unfolded was as expected riveting! Into the last third of the book Cassandra's voice shone through again and the book ended brilliantly. I subtracted a star - for I found the middle of this book almost absent of Cassandra's writing style. It just lacked the x-factor I fell in love with when it came to her writing style, her use of words, phrases and poetic deepness was a bit absent. But a very enjoyable read indeed.
