My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. There were parts of this book that I had to re-read for I was sure that I had read them before. I found it was the way the story was constructed that some of the plot was repeated but it did not hook me right way. There were moments that had me so excited and kept me reading, but the reading did make me put it down a few times. I did for the most part enjoy the story line and the character. I like the character Jaz. I will have to see about the other two books in the trilogy and see about how I feel about this over all.

My Rating of the Book: 3 1/2 Stars
