I'm 53 yrs old and have read literally thousands of books. I'm an avid reader. I purchased these through another online resource then came looking for more books By Brian S. Pratt. Mr Pratt pulls you into his books and makes you understand and care for his characters. With the start of the first book I thought I'd purchased something a bit too young for me, but as the story progressed the writer and the characters grew until I was completely hooked. I quickly purchased the whole series. As with the Harry Potter series I didn't want the story to end. I've read the first book in the next series, and now eagerly await the second book which is almost completed! Keep them coming Brian!
