C.J. Lyons did a great job on this series. It was fun, interesting, sad, triumphant, exciting, thrilling, exasperating, and romantic all on the same page sometimes. It had a great story line and the character development was top notch. These books suck in in one side and spit you out exhausted on the other. It one of those series you just cant put down and I am so glad I found them AFTER she had written them all because waiting on the next book would have driven me insane.
