My Review: I picked this one up when I was in the library. I was looking for a quick read and something I could easily carry around with me. This book fit the bill. Of course I didn't count on it being as quick a read as it was. I read it in an hour. It was an ok book. Considering the length, I think the author did a good job of telling the story. With the exception of the Devin character, there was very little character description/development going on. The story was interesting. It caught my attention and I was curious to see how things turned out. It wasn't anything too exciting though. Overall, it was ok.

My Rating: It was ok
