Pretty good for a first book but not much excitement. Not enough happens with a simple plot. Characters are likeable so maybe a sequel could add more excitement and adventure for them.
This book was great it had unforgettable characters. I have already reread it. I completely enjoyed it. Great Job!!!
the book summary/synopsis is very misleading. i was expcting a darker world. there was practically no plot. the characters just spent most of the time in a sickbed or watching over someone in the sickbed. one word to sum up this book is LAME. don't bother with it.
This book is one that you never want to put down. It may start off a bit rocky, since you do not knowing all of the information, but that is one of the things that kept this book so addictive! The more you read, the more intranced you become until you have to know what happens. It is an amazing read that I would recommend to anyone.
