My Review:

Wow. A suspense story with a completely happy ending. I can’t believe how captivated I was throughout. I spent the entire story trying to figure out who did what, only to find out that I was wrong. And to top it off, nothing in the story was ever out of place.

The descriptions and writing style found in this novel are brilliantly suited to the subject and story type. Everything flows brilliantly, captivating the audience and keeping them entranced in a world that is brought to life through words. The characters in this story were quite well developed for a novella. You got to know each one of the main characters, and understand them. It is something quite unique even for a full length novel.

This was a very captivating, and quick read. It was a brilliant way to spend some time and I can’t wait to get a chance to re-read it.
