You ever grab a book, read part of the description and know you want to read it - only to find out that it is not the first in the series it is part of? I have had this happen on occasion and this is one of them.
Even though I have not read the first two books of this series (at 27% in, I purchased both), this book was very enjoyable. It is also very well done, giving enough information so that the reader is not confused if they either hadn't read the first two books or hadn't read them in a while, but also leaves enough out that you really want to find out what is going on in the first two. The characters are interesting and I really cared what happened to them; the descriptions of not only the people, but the events happening were very detailed and, even though there were a few slow parts, I had a lot of problems putting this book down.
A great ending to a trilogy, with a beginning I can't wait to read. :)
Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
