After my 21 year old dyslexic son, read this whole series in a week, I knew I had to at least try this. He hasn't read a thing since the last book they forced him to read in H.S. So after finishing this cliffhanger of a book, I can see what the lure is to so many. A lot of the "surprising" things that happened, I saw coming, so that kind of fell flat for me. But the world building was great and I will read the next book.
