Where's the first book, though?

The thing is, it's a good book. And a good concept. But they didn't seem to be the same. I read the blurb and thought it sounded awesome. That part was over by the fifteenth page. I felt like the first fifteen pages were rushed, and the rest of the book was incredibly slow. I didn't have a good idea of who the characters were or what was going on. I actually checked to make sure there wasn't actually a book before this, because that's exactly what it felt like to me. It would be a great second book. As a first, I was too confused to even finish it.


It's weird that their last name is Reckless.


a good book by a good writer




This book will keep you in the edge of your seat, and the magic and myths in here are very exciting. I recommend this to, well, everyone.
