My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: Wendy Webb is one of those authors who are getting better with each book of hers that I have read. I preferred this book much more to her first release and found it laid out much better. The characters were much more approachable and the storyline much more mysterious. I found that there were many mysteries that I didn't see coming and was pleasantly surprised by twists the author that left me "ooohing and ahhhhing".
I must say that the ending of the book was a bit of a nice red ribbon which drives me nuts but it didn't ruin the read for me. I simply rolled my eyes.
