After reading the first two books, I was happy to see the 3rd book. I am only 20% of the way in and have to say its so DRY and SLOW that I have put it down 4 times and tried again and again. The other two grabbed you right off at the beginning but this one just drags. I have read most of this author's books and enjoyed them but not so much on this one. I will eventually finish it and will update my review but at this time. Yuck! $5 is a high price for this one just not worth it.
