I thought the idea behind this novel was excellent, so I bought this book with the idea that it would live up to first impressions.
Well, it did to a certain extent, but I reckon whoever edited it should have done a better job! There was far too much repetition and backstory, which could have been tightened up considerably. This had the effect of slowing down what could have been a very tight, tension-filled, exciting story.
I got confused by who was talking to whom, as the formatting was not up to scratch. This could well have been skewed during downloading processes from the site, but it really needs to have someone re-format. Paragraphs run into each other, which causes confusion.
The ending is unfinished, and I wanted to read a followup. However, there doesn't appear to be a sequel.
The characters are good - I liked Skye and Thea, but Zack was a bit of a twit. The kids were good, and the dogs, of course, were excellent. How can anyone write in "bad" dogs? :)
Overall, I did like the plot but feel it could have been better written. I would gladly get an update if the author uploaded one.
Overall, the plot left me wanting to find out what happened to them all, so it certainly wasn't a bad book.
