I really enjoyed this book. The characters are very believable. The storyline was not so far-fetched as to be laughable. There is also a secondary story in the prefaces of each chapter that was quite interesting. It would difficult for me to find something I did not like about this book. I am looking for ward to finding the other books in the series.
