Shawn Cormier was born in the small town of Southbridge, Massachusetts. He found his love for words early, reading the likes of Jim Kjelgaard, Jack London and J.R.R. Tolkien. Finally, having run out of "good reads", he put pen to paper and at age twelve wrote his first short story. He has been writing ever since, earning his Creative Writing degree from Long Island University, Southampton Campus in 1989. When not writing, he can be found in his jewelry store, repairing ancient heirlooms and studying the magical properties of gems, and wishing he was writing.

I am also far from being a teen ( 40 year old male), and I couldn't agree more. I loved this series. I once again found myself wanting to do nothing more then kick back in my recliner and read. The story had me by the end of the first paragraph; oh, how well it was written.
The characters were compellingly real whether "good" or "bad". I found myself actually being each one as I read.
I would certainly recommend reading at least the first one, knowing full well that soon you would take my advice and read all three.

The story's target group is teen or young aduld.
Being a not-so-young adult, I still liked the story.
Well written story and a good trilogy it is.
"The good" characters are likeable and "the bad" characters are exactly as "bad" as they should be.
Well written and well formatted (.mobi version)
