This was a prequel that told you nothing....it didn't engage you to want to care about the 13 year old boy except get pissed. Than there is nothing.....I mean it. Bad first step to getting someone to buy the actual first book. Reevaluate!
This book was a random pick for a book but now has made me a stalker of when she will come out with the next one. She takes you through the eyes of all the characters in such detail that you cheer, get pissed or want nothing but the them to get their cake and eat it too. She-Who-Is always gives you a choice but know you are in the end god of your own path. Nice beginning and the second one is even better!
