Great Story! Worth the cost!

My only regret is not finding this author when I was younger! Excellent read, surprised it hasn't been reviewed. The hero is a girl, but the story doesn't focus on that, which is nice, makes it accessible to all! I've enjoyed every Pierce book series I've read...which is about 4 now! I read them and pass them on to my husband. His only complaint os that he stays up late to finish them!
