    As odd as that sounds, it's true. I first red this book when I was a kid and it was my favorite book for years.
  • Great Read

    Really enjoyed this book, didn't want to put it down, but life happens. I thought it was a little drawn out in the end, but I really enjoy the Pentegast books.

  • Leave logic at the door

    By Ranae Lemcke
    I prefer some hint of realism in books I take time to read. None discovered in this book with poor storyline and even worse developed characters.

    Although there are a few nice turns of phrase, this story is so very dumb, that I find the five-star reviews almost incomprehensible. Add to that some seriously annoying characters, and all I want to know is, can I get those nights I wasted reading this junk back? Please.

    A great read, as usual a knock out punch is delivered by Child.
  • Disgustingly wonderful!

    By MissyLeslie
    This is an incredibly well told story, it was impossible to put down. I loved the characters and felt as though I had met them. It's been a long time since I have had this enjoyable of a read. You'd be cheating yourself if you didn't read this book.
