Ah, well, then you have not lived! LOL Just kidding. It’s a really gripping book, the first in the Ascendence series (I haven’t read the rest). It’s set in a fake medieval world. Not usually what I read, but the story gripped me so much that it was one of those books you can’t wait to read (and believe me, for a book to do that to me it’s got to be good). I was disappointed at the end, but the rest of the book is sooooo good. My sister liked the end, so that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t. It’s just my opinion.
