Way too short.

This book seems well written, with a decent inventory system and a fairly wide variety of path choices. I was extremely disappointing to realize it only takes a couple hours to complete. This may be simply because it is the first book in the series, but at four dollars a book I'm not going to give the second book a shot.
On a side note there was an strange area of the book where you are attempting to wind your way through the crowded metropolis to the palace. You have many choices of streets to choose from and businesses to go into, but very little to go off of to make these decisions. Sometimes it is as little information as street names. There is only one way to get to the palace through this maze of guess work and all other ways lead to your character dying. And that's not dying in multiple different ways either. All other paths lead to your character walking down a street, turning down an alley, climbing some stairs on to the rooftops, roof hopping your way to the palace and falling to your death just before you get there. All without one single input from the user. Shameful. Walk down a street, fall off a rooftop; exit a building, fall off a rooftop; say hi to a friend, fall off a rooftop.
