Evaluation

I recommend this to people who like a lot of action and mystery. I like this book because you never exactly know what is going to happen next. Sometimes you predict things, but then the total opposite happens and it throws you off. It is a very exciting and action-filled book. The characters are involved in many fights and plans in everything they do.
