I am picky about the books I read. If I am not drawn in quickly, I usually will not finish the book. This book pulled me in quick with a wonderful character creation that really connected the reader to characters. I found myself getting to the end of the book and found I was upset that the sequal wasn't available yet. The Judas Alliance is really a breath of fresh air with great world concepts that I would never have thought of. Definatly worth reading!
