I won this book in a giveaway on another website a few months back but hadn't gotten to it until now. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what to think of it. It feels a bit like two different books at times. One book that could have ended about halfway through, and then another book that took elements of the story and kept them going. At times I felt like the writing was a little bogged down by an abundance of details, but it didn't happen so often that I was overly bothered about it. For the most part the story moved along at a good pace and had heroes you could get behind. It reminds me ever so slightly of Dan Brown, similar in style but the pacing is nowhere near as rapid as Mr. Brown's. Overall I liked the book and might consider picking up the sequel if I come across it.
