Although there were a few typos and issues I had with the writing, I thought the world the author created - with it's many different parallel worlds was so interesting, and the fact that the story is so action-packed kept me reading. The characters are great - Milo and his group of friends all have different powers that work together very well to get them past all the dangers in their path. I think the ideas behind this story are very solid and the author really knows how to create an engrossing storyline. The character development isn't very deep, and although the world-building is complex, it isn't all explained (perhaps for the next book) but I think this is a highly engaging quick read for people who love fantasy and magical quests.
