The book was over all okay. I liked the characters, and the plot was interesting for the most part. But I felt bored through a whole lot of it. Some of it just didn't seem to fit really well with the other part of the story, or certain things were overshadowed by other things. So it was a interesting read for the most part, but at times it did seem to drag because I was slightly bored with it.
