Good read but short
I literally stayed up all night reading it. It's a pretty good non stop page turner. That being said it felt a little rushed at times and rather short! There was just a little more umph that I wanted and it almost ended abruptly. I kinda wanted some kinda closure! That being said can't wait for next one!
**BTW ITUNES: I can't upload reviews from my iPhone 4S (up to date) on any book! I press "send" and nothing happens.
I can read it again and again!!!
Best book I've read in a long time!!! I just finished it and I want to reread it because I can't take my mind off of it. I'm just ticked that I have to wait to continue the trilogy! I definitely recommend this one, though. This book will definitely join the classics!
A tired plot that's been done before (The Princess Academy; Chemical Garden trilogy). Not fresh or original, writing style is hurried and curt. Overall underwhelming.
