There is a lot of wasted chapters at the beginning of the book. Pearson spends too much time setting up what the villains are doing and most of it is unnecessary. He also spends too much time trying to convince the reader that the keepers are in real danger, not just "Disney" danger, instead of letting the story do it for him. The real story doesn't really start until about 10 chapters in.
I liked all of the characters. Andrews always gives a good performance.
I did enjoy the overall story once it started, but was let down by the lack of ending. The last three chapters are a set up for the next installment. While I am happy about another installment, there should have been an actually ending to the story. Overall, I was pretty disappointed.
