After the first two books, I thought this was would be pretty great. But actually, it was kinda of boring and I HATE Dybuck. I think he a a stupid stuck-up little rich kid. So knowing that he is now a main character, it draws me away from the books even more.

I read all the other books and I've been waiting for this book for a year and my parents wont let me get it. This book looks really,really,really,outstanding.

This book was just as i expected. I knew it was either going to be just as good or better than the first two, and I was right. I have to admit, the fake computer-assistance yoga thing threw me off a little. But then again i've noticed that P. B. Kerr does have a little bit of his... own style. Anyway, this book was awesome, but make sure you read the first two before even attampting this one or else you'll be completely thrown off.

I'm afraid this book did NOT live up to my expectations. The ending was one of the most dissapointing that I have ever read. I am ssooooooooooo glad I didn't buy it. The first two were much better much much much better. Sure the overall middle was okay but it just went on and on and on. And then It ends with a totally bad conclusion. Maybe if this was a series and another book was coming out it would be okay but it is a Trilogy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The action was indeed non-stop and the story was very good. It kept me on the edge of my seat the Whole Time! Note to the Author: I appreciated the subtraction of all the smoking. It wasn't there like it was in the first two. Kids don't need to think smoking's 'Cool' (it isn't).
