This was quite good! The characters were fun and well written, though I felt they got a bit numerous at times. The flow and pacing was excellent; there was no lolly gagging to bore the reader, nor did it move so fast that you felt like you missed something or got reader's whip lash lol. The story was very interesting and engaging. Well written, too.
It did feel a bit involved and complicated at times, which is fine in and of itself, I had no problems with it, but I wonder if it might be a bit much for the lower part of the recommended reading age. I could be wrong, of course,and just worrying about nothing! Either way, I'm going to have my kids read this when they get a bit older. I think they'll enjoy it.
