I loved this book because it had a mystery brewing on every page and had well described characters to follow the plot that was wonderfully written by J.E. Thompson. I could not put this book down for a few seconds just because it was that good. I would recommend this book for readers eight and above because there are some complicated topics and mild violence throughout the book. There are also some sad parts and other places that can get into complicated topics or very emotional.
