" I wish I could award this with 3 and half stars but since that's not possible, I guess just three stars seems fitting. This book started off pretty slow. It was a bit boring, seemingly because there was no really direction that it was leading to at first. It pretty much seemed like an introduction that was extended far more than it needed to be. However, as the book picked up momentum, though it was all the way in the last couple of chapters, the plot seemed to surface and previous chapters began to be relevant. In those last chapters, the somewhat agonized beginning and middle became worth the struggle. It probably didn't end with the resolve I would have wanted but I guess it was good enough. The end seemed rather abrupt in a way. But overall, a good solid book. Not quite sure if I would read the second of the series. Maybe, maybe not. "
