Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Every time I think AB'Gail has found a safe place the something comes in and ruins it, J.L. Mulvihill is able to weave a wonderful and suspenseful tale about a girl against the system. J.L. Mulvihill has written a wonderful adventure story that kept me on the edge of my seat and once the book was finished I wanted more. The characters in the story were well written and the bad guys I was rooting to fail, during reading I got so suspicious of new characters and felt the same thing as Abby. Overall the Steel Roots saga is a wonderful addition to my reading library and I look forward to the third book and hope Abby is able to get a happy ending.
