Great read, pulls you in and let's you live with the characters!
Ms. Griffin spins an engaging tale set in a galaxy far, far away that draws the reader into the story line and the interesting characterizations from the outset. Her descriptions and narration keep the reader's interest engaged and provide an escape from the daily grind on planet Earth. I recommend the book to anyone who needs to get away from it all and enjoy someone else's stress for a change.
