This was an enthralling read, once I started I could not put the book down. I kept telling myself “just one more chapter” until I reached the end. There is sad death, surprising revelations and almost non-stop action until we reach an exciting climax that leaves us longing for the next book to see what happens. The whole series is highly recommended. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
