Wow! This was an awesome book! Here I am in the last week of summer school drowning in school work, and I didn't want to do any homework in order to read this book! I fell asleep a couple times while reading, because I had a hard time stopping. You know how it is, "I'll stop reading before the next chapter...Maybe when it slows down..." It starts off with action and never slows down! I was very sad when it ended! I hope there are a LOT of books in this series and even a pre-book that gives more info than the journal entries! I love all the different creatures that I can imagine how they look! She "illustrates" her characters and the places they are in an incredible way, but still leaves enough room to imagine the rest (especially the Lorkons). Andrea is a fantastic writer and I'm thoroughly looking forward to more of her books!
If you like action and/or Sci-Fi books, then this book is for you! It is about a teenager, but could be good for pre-teens and up! Matter-of-fact Ill let my (advanced) 8-year-old read it and see what he thinks too! I have a feeling that he won't be too happy when he finds out it is just the one in the series so far!
