this book was VERY out of the blue! and if ur thinking ' this is just another fantasy book' than ur wrong! of course it has the occansional 'we're about to die' thing but its very different than other fantasy books! i read the whole series and thought all of them were good. the first one was kinda odd the way it jumped around but 2 and 3 were perfect endings! i hope they make a 4th!!!
