This book had me wondering where it was going for the first few chapters. By page 40 I wasn't sure if I could go on, then the action started to build. As it went on, I was turning the pages without realizing (I was so engrossed). Building, building, then POW the door slams in my face. Not my favorite way to end a story. Not sure yet if I will be reading the sequel to see if the author will be using that as a jumping off point for a more intense continuation.
