Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First book was worth reading I bought this along with Book 2 to 4, and wasn't sure if I would like this series. I am glad I purchased all four at once, because once I started, I couldn't put this down. The titles for each chapter are really unique.... they actually give you a cryptic summary of what is about to happen in the chapter, but you as the reader have no idea until we finish reading the chapter. Would definitely recommend this to my friends and family and any avid reader :D
