This series was very entertaining and easy to read. The plot was very well thought out with the secrets and twist and turns that I didn't expect. I was glad that I received these books together so that I could continue reading and find out what happens next. I'm sure that there must be another book and I cant wait to read it. Although this book is meant for young readers I'm sure that adults would enjoy them too.
I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley.
