Amazon Review

Awesome By MalissaFormat:Kindle EditionThis book was just as good or even better than the first in the series. The writing was excellent. The plot was well organized. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The character story's were competed. There was just enough of everything a book should have to be excellent.
Overall it was a great book
