I hardly write reviews, but this book is very entertaining and well thought out. I read it in a few hours after getting it earlier in the day. I can't believe it's free, and now i will go look for the others in the series. =)

Usually with free books i am a bit skeptical but this was perhaps the best free book i have found to date. The plot was fast paced and the it is a story that has never been done before. Read, read, read!

A fantasy style read. Not a bad read, and the author brings some imaginative concepts to life. I think this could also be considered a teenage read.

This book is probably intended for 11 to 15 year olds maybe. The book is fantasy and has a great storyline. Sometimes, I think the way the thoughts are put down aren' t the best. Overall, it is a wonderful and very addicting book. I can' t wait to read the next book!!

I really enjoyed this book. Very good for being free and for pages a bit long. The book kept me interested, and one to none dull spots, plus had a bit of romance. It is quite a easy read id say but is nice to have the dictionary handy on the nook for some parts. I would recommed to people who like a bit of romance, but is focused on other things.

This isn't your usual paranormal romance novel. Well written and surprisingly different, I read this book in a few hours. It kept me on the edge of my seat, for sure! I'll be buying the rest of the series. I hope they are as good as A Diamond In My Pocket.
