    "This book is the start of a fantastic series. I absolutely could not put it down. I was glad that I waited to start the series until all of the books were released. I read them one right after the other. I think that it would have been difficult to wait between releases. "

    "Gone With a Wind is a classic, but for me, not the most compelling read ever. More something to read for class, than for enjoyment, I'd suggest more entertaining reads for the category before this one."

    "Harry Potter, just the name brings me to a point of longing for another series of books that can compare. JK Rowling's finale to the epic series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of those books that makes you forget all your obligations. If you have not read this (or if you are reading again) clear your calendars and get take out, you won't be able to put this book down."
