Rated 3 out of 5 by from Exciting THis novel was one that was excitin right from the very beggining and the things that happen in it are very unexpected. I really enjoyed it but in a way i thoguht it was kinda of out of the ordinary from how the novel had been presented in the begging. But even with that taken into consideration it was still worth it and i woudl still advice everyone to read it !
