It seemed like it could have been a great read but too short. At least have an ending to the story dont just skip into a prologue to another book.

I love the Piper series. This short story was creepy and made you think about all the friends you have confirmed on facebook. I couldn't put it down.

It was a very interesting book but was a little shorter than I expected. Very good story line though.

|The Great Oak| <br /> <br /> At the center of the gathering clearing grows an ancient oak. From it's massive branches the entire gathering can be seen. Here the leaders will announce the news of their clans while their clanmates listen from below. The twisted roots at its base serve as perches for each clans' deputy as well. This is an important place. What is said from the top of this mighty tree will shape the very destiny of the pact clans. <br /> <br /> Here is The Great Oak and a list of reminders pertaining to it. <br /> <br /> 1. ONLY pact clan leaders should post here. If you are not the leader of Horseclan, Sandclan, Ashclan, Northclan, or Rainclan, then you should not be posting here. Please respect this. It is to ensure that everyone can easily read what each clan leader has to say. The only exception is if your clan leader gives his/her deputy permission to announce in his/her place or if they are pronounced missing. Remember they have all day Sunday to post their speeches. The last leader should also dismiss the gathering. So depending on how quickly the leaders arrive and share their news, the gathering could be long or short. All other cats besides leaders can respond to these announcements in The Gathering Clearing. <br /> <br /> 2. Remember if a leader has gone missing by the time of one gathering and has not returned by the next (or is only briefly on), then the deputy should take on role as leader. This gives the leader at least a full two weeks to be active. Of course if the leader gives warning in advance of his/her absence, then this will not apply. Also if a very active leader were to come back then the two leaders would have to work something out. But clans are only as active as their leaders and I believe leaders should earn their place through hard work. <br /> <br /> 3. Leaders, please try to post your announcement first thing or asap. You are in charge of these gatherings and I want them to be fun for everyone. That involves being timely. Thanks! <br /> <br /> ~ The Great Oak: Rosepetal, Original Pact Clan Helper.

This was a good novella! I was hoping that the ending was a little more sinister and drawn out. But I get the message of the book, you never know who u r really talking to on facebook especially if u don't recognize the name.
