This is a must read! The characters and their personalities beautifully came through to the reader. The added suspense kept me up reading the book all night until complete!
This is a suspenseful book which kept me on the edge of the seat. As a matter of fact, I had to read it in two days, foregoing sleep, because I refused to stop until I could find out what happened in the end! A very nice twist, and I loved the ending, but I was also sad that it was over!
