There wasn't a dull moment with this book. Each page was full of action and so much suspense I almost couldn't stand. The witty writing with just enough humor to lighten the intense emotions and unfair cruelly made me love this book even more.
And oh boy the characters. How should I start with that?! Sarah was butt-kicking awesome. Until this book I had yet to find such a great female character in quite a long time. She was a quick thinker who wouldn't back down even she was in so much trouble. I loved the fact that she wasn't the typical girlie type who would just wait around to be saved and the fact that she was bald made she even more than perfect to me. Pierce/Thomas was a fricking adorable (and nerdy.) I loved how hilarious he was. The boy was not only swoon-worthy because of the fact that he was a total babe, but also a wicked smart one as well. And Crazy Oscar was... well crazy. It was torture that I couldn't predict what he was going to do.
Besides the well-developed characters, the storyline was very promising from the start. I had to say it was one of the books I couldn't stop reading because each scene made me want to know more.The plot twists weren't NOT unexpected, though some part were very surprising, but I still loved how everything was revealed and came together in the end. There were some parts near the end that I think more explanation should have been given, but overall I was more than satisfied.
All in all, this book was a total action pack with a nice touch of humor and a whole lot of killing. It might be a great choice for those who are looking for a suspenseful read with (very) little romance, but big on action and adventure.
