This was a slighty better than average novel. I found it a tad bit slow till about half way and kept wondering what the actual point of the story was. But if you can push through it, it is defiantly worth it. So just finish it! :) But this story defiantly took longer for me to get though for most books. It may have possibly been better if the book was longer as there is a lot of detail during the first half.
It is defiantly original and I loved seeing the names and cities of places that I live close to (I assume the author is from BC or at least spent a lot of time there).
I will probably read the next book because I have a hate love relationship with cliffhangers.
