I loved this series! Brandon is such a great hero. Clever, strong, and caring for others. So much so that his biggest fear seems to be accidentally hurting those around him.
At the same time there is a great reflection of our own society in the way of the 'Followers'. The author talks about how easily they give up their will and now that I I've seen it that way, I admit he has a point.
The book is a winner from the beginning, but once the action begins, it's very hard to put down!
