I picked this novel up on a recommendation. Reading through the first few pages, I began to have my doubts as I found the sentences to be short and choppy and instead of the typical quotation marks around sentences, single quotation marks were used (' instead of "). The writing quickly smoothed out with likable characters and a captivating story. Some elements of the story jolted me back to real life when EVERYTHING that was happening had to come together perfectly with a healthy dose of luck for the story to proceed though. And whats the deal with only one trap? i know it had to happen for a few events but only one trap?! All in all, an exciting, quality read.
