    Pretty good, albeit super short It s impressive that Sawyer can pack as much in to a 300 page novel as would take other authors 5 600 pages But despite the amount of action and questions and answers, it still felt like it was lacking something Maybe taking a slightly slower pace would have lent the action and revelations a littleweight.Holy crap though, what action There are
