This book was extremely long. While I appreciated the wonderful planned plot, there just seemed to be too much to fit into one book. It long distances where there wasn't any action and then boom, its about to pull your hair at trying to keep up with every different thing that is going on. Words we never speak would have made an excellent series. I felt the characters were easy to confide in and learn to trust.
