Cannot wait for the next book to come out in the series.
On occasion I thought there was too much unnecessary or redundant detail for the main story and would much rather have seen attention spent on supporting characters.
It's a riveting page turner with twists and turns galore, as the reader keep wondering what's coming next, all the way to the end.
I'm hoping there Will be a follow-up book to draw all the pieces together and answer the questions that were left unanswered in this book.Published 2 months ago by jeannie ouellette

I was all into the story and then it ends with an epilogue. No reasonable explanation..... just ended. I guess I have to buy the next one...Published 5 months ago by Timothy G.
Extremely slow-moving and wordy. The writer seemed to hold the plot in secret, as if afraid the reader might see too much of it. I lost patience within the first third of the book.Published 5 months ago by so. singer
