Found out about this book on Twitter. Visited their blog and read all the question people had emailed them. I found it interesting and decided to download the book. I can't tell you how glad I am that I did. I read the book from cover to cover three times (skipping the rather long prologue), and found something new with each read, new questions I found myself asking. I love that. I have the feeling that this series is very deep in back-story, which is being given to us a little at a time. I love a good read that makes you question why some things are happening, or, how someone could possibly survive what Amanda goes through within just the first two chapters. In book one, we do have some of the answers given, but, I have the feeling that book two is going to begin with excitement, since this book left off with a battle against evil wizards and huge vicious spiders. I loved the ending, and can’t wait to see what happens right off in book two!
