I seldom give 5 Star ratings to books with semi-cliffhanger endings, (not a full cliffhanger but this is a trilogy I believe and the first part was done and we move on but I wanted it NOW!!) so I hope that gives you an idea of how much I liked this story. - Douglas C. Meeks: Amazon Top 500 Reviewer
