Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Novel for Young Adults This book stays true to Carols Ruiz Zafr?n's dark, mysterious, melancholic style of writing. As noted at the very beginning of the novel it is intended for young adults and is the second novel he ever wrote. It is not to the same level of writing that you may have come to expect from 'Shadow of the Wind' if you are an adult audience. It is completely appropriate and intriguing for teenagers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from amateur story and writing heard of this writer through reviews on the shadow of the wind. apparently he's a great writer and the story is suppose to be amazing. therefore i decided to get this book since no one had written a review and it sounded really interesting. about 7 friends discovering a dangerous ancient mystery that involves one of them. they protect, fight and love each other- creating their own secret society. writing is amateur not much substance, easy read and you could finish it in a few hours. the print is large and massive spacing. i was expecting more since the cover made it seem like a in depth mystery, but i should have known better since the book is fairly short. i also found it in the teen section, so that would make sense as well. reminds me of goosebumps good spooky story for teens, but not for adults. you want more advance reading try justin cronin. i would try another of this author's novel.
