Why I Read this Book:  I found this book free on Amazon and the cover really popped out to me.  The cover is so gorgeous!!! After reading the synopsis on Amazon, I knew that I had to read this book.

Overall Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book.  It was full of suspense.

In Depth Analysis

I really enjoyed reading this book.  It was filled with plot twists and action.  Although sometimes predictable, this book really kept me on my toes and wanting to read more.  It did not take me long to get hooked and wonder were the time had gone after reading over 40% of the book at one time.  The suspense was really well placed and well written.  The romance was perfect for a young adult book.  The only negative thoughts that I had about this book is that it was poorly written in parts and the writing style was not very well developed and also there was a few curse words in the book, especially near the end.

Final Statements

Recommended Reading Age:  I would recommend this book to ages 13+.  There was some cussing in the book, but that was the only inappropriate material in the book.

Overall Rating: 4/5
