To me this felt like I was reading the notes for a novel. The basic plot was interesting, but it felt under-developed. Characters appeared without explanation, and some felt like they were little more than names. It has the potential to be a good story, but it needs more work.
Although this book is aimed at the YA reader it still has appeal for not so young adults, like myself. The characters are well written and the story flows smoothly, with an ever increasing build in tension. The plot is well thought out and it all ties in nicely without leaving the reader with questions irritatingly unanswered. I would definitely read more by this author and recommend her work to others.
