A very good book, can get boring.

This is a great book, I have rated it 12 because of the inappropriate things. There is passionate kissing and an affair. Violence, it is a murder mystery so... yea. The swearing is actually not very high, there is one use of sh*t, and two uses of bitch. Overall a very good book, I recommend it.

This title has:

Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

Parents say (1):
Kids say (9):

Not unlike the first volume in the series, this one is a cornucopia of wildly imagined plot developments that are well over the top before the first cobra crops up in the Angel apartment. Pages turn and eyes roll as this everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach (detective story! Teen romance! International intrigue! Courtroom drama! Mental hospitals! Corporate villains! And of, course, the snakes...) delivers an improbable but intriguing tale of love, family, and courage pitted against evil forces.
