This is a first novel by a talented author. There are a few rough spots in dialog but they are absolutely overwhelmed by the need to know what happens next. It kept me flipping pages on my Nook and when I got to the end I swiped at it twice to turn the page before I knew it was finished. The story is complete in itself, but could be extended to a series. I hope it is.
