My Review

I've given these books 4 stars as a package. I truly enjoyed book 1 and it was very different from anything I had read before. The characters were interesting and kept me wondering what would happen next. In Book 2, it moved forward quite a few years and the gap left me wondering what had happened, and why it took so long for them to worry about this dagger that was so important. Other than that it again was a fun read and the characters were interesting. In Book 3, I was sorry it was over. I wanted more. I hope this author continues on with this series because I believe he can continue on. This series is also good for kids, my son is 12 years old and he enjoyed these books and they kept his interest even though he annoyed me with asking me what certain words would sound like. Names and places were unusual for him and he wasn't sure how they should sound. Other than that one tiny issue, which to me wasn't a problem, he really loved the books. Great job making a series that both kids and adults could enjoy.
