I enjoyed this book. I found it to be a quick read, perhaps geared toward a young adult or pre-teen reader. However, the author pulled the story together, brought in new characters and twists and wrapped it up nicely leaving room for book 2 or 3 or more. This reader is more than ready for book 2 and hopes the author won't make us wait too long!
