I had a hard time with this story. I didn't really care for the characters, too sullen & rather unlikeable. The plot is so thick it was hard to foll..Show More »ow. Had to keep "rewinding" the audio. I lost interest but kept thinking it might get better. Finished with another cliff hanger that I'm not interested in finishing. Would not recommend this. I read or listen to all the books I give to my nieces & nephews between 10-15 years old. It's just OK.
