I completely enjoyed this book. I am very glad to add it to my bookshelf. I think the author did an incredible job describing the details. I love the story, and I love the plot. I understood the story even though I haven't read the first or second book, which I cannot wait to read. I think the author did an incredible job pulling the reader into the book. I recommend this book for readers 12 and older because there are some emotional scenes that might be too intense for younger children.
