This book relates to real life as well as brings you to a new world. Lots of character development to come, tons of drama (good and annoying), plenty of action and adventure and it's just full of plain amazingness!!A fast read that is completely amazing!

An exciting start to an interesting premise. It promises much character development, action, and a bit of romance on the side.
