3.5 rounding up to 4
This was very intense. Pretty much right off the bat, the action starts and doesn't let up much! The characters are very engaging and the pace, while being fast feeling as you hang on to your butt, was consistent. This author is very adept at telling his story, and sucks you right in! Plus: Fur babies! Definitely a thrilling ride I'd suggest to any one I know who likes the genre. I can't find many words for this without giving spoilers, sorry!
I can say that on occasion, it felt a little bogged down in words. I know, I said action all the way through, but even in these wordy bits it was still exciting lol.
