This was the first of the Wren books I had read, and I thought it was just wonderful. I have now gone to my favorite booksellers to check on buying all of the other books in the series. These characters are all well written, and I could tell the history, feeling, animosity for all of them, even without the back story many of the other readers may may have had. I love that there is plenty of action in the book without it being bloody and gory. Anyone can pick this book up and enjoy a thrilling read and page turning plots. I wish I would have known about this series sooner! I really couldn't stop reading once I picked it up and had it finished in one night! Wren, Connor, Tessa, Tyron, and Hawk entwine themselves in a wonderfully playful and intriguing story involving everything necessary for a great conclusion: pirates, kidnap, wizards, magic, princesses, the untrusted suitor, and best friends. I can't wait to read the rest of these books!! :-)
Awesome book continuing the Wren story
