A little difficult to get into, but a good book

I'm not sure if it was just me, but this book was kind of hard to get into. I might have had too many expectations of this book. everything was moving so fast sometimes I had no idea what was going on, and I often found myself going back and reading a page or too again. *SPOILERS* I find it annoying that Sophie learns the elemental magics in all of two minutes, and suddenly knows what to do. I'm missing what the magic is really all about. This really had the potential to be a great book, but the plot has fallen short. I will read the next book, though, just not right away.

GREAT SECOND BOOK

I LOVED THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! I believe this is a GREAT book for ages 10 and up! This book is equally good for both boys and girls. What I really enjoyed about it is that the female characters are strong and just as important as the males.

Look down

Iv'e read the whole series but i am too lazy too review every sing one of them so..., This book is really REALLY good it is a must read for adventures seekers and kids 10 & up. I loved it it is action filled and anyone who likes action will love this book plus the whole series. overall book good for ages 10 and up due to the intense violence.
