I liked this story. But, just like all of the author's books, the chapters are tooooo long. I hate chapters that take 20+ minutes to read. Almost every single chapter could have been split into 2 or 3 chapters. Another complaint I have is that the formatting(?) of the book only shows the book has 1 chapter, therefore instead of my kindle showing me how much time it will take to read each chapter, it showed how long it would take to read the entire book. I really rely on that chapter count to know if I have enough time to read one more chapter or not (especially when I read during my lunch at work).
Cally makes a new friend in this book, and unfortunately loses another. He seems to be close to finishing his quest of finding the original Cycle, but gets diverted by a new quest instead. I'm looking forward to the next one to see how he and his new friend and traveling companion further their quest.
