was engrossed in this story so quickly, I was unable to put it down. The characters spring to life so quickly you will find yourself immersed into their strange world within the first few pages. The writers discriptive ability will at times, have you on the edge of your seat. The fight scene with Merititi puts right there in the Ferassium rooting along with the crowd for her survival. The story builds up beautifully from chapter to chapter bringing all the characters to their destiny. This is an awesome trilogy. I will write my review for The Golden Scarab shortly as I read it straight after Ferrasium and I wait in anticipation for the release of the final book.
