I really enjoyed it.
The original trilogy is amazing and when I found out there was another book to the series I bought it immediately. This is one of those books that you absolutely can’t put down-resulting in me reading it in one day. Jaron never fails to impress me with every new death defying stunt he pulls and the plot twists will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you are considering reading this book-do it! You won’t regret it!
Wow! All I can say right now is wow! Such a great book! Thank you Mrs. Nielsen!
After it’s been somewhere around 6 years since the third book of this series came out, this new storyline and characters with an intense plot is amazing! The intensity accompanied by Jaron’s humor and some insane plot twists comes together to create a great masterpiece! There is a fifth book coming, but even a sixth book would be worth the read too, well done!!!
