    "I haven't read many YA novels, so take all this with a grain of salt. Moonglow was an interesting book, and the story kept me engaged for the most part. I have to be in the right mood for a novel like this, but I'd still recommend it to others. "

    "This book is forgettable. I swear I can't remember more than three characters. My friend bought this for me as a gift and, although I appreciate the thought, it was not a wise choice. The dialogue makes me roll my eyes."

    "As much as a reader like me would fall in love with any Dresden Files books, Death Masks is definitely not a young adult book like I was searching for. On its own, it's great, but as a solution for someone who wants urban fiction for a younger reader, it's really too much. I'll keep looking for something more age-appropriate and fitting for the urban genre."

    "Feverborn is full of fun and flavor! While the plot can be a little meandering, the character growth and interactions are engaging and realistic. I love how an epic tale is told alongside classic and relate-able human relationships. I do thin the prose could be improved with some editing, but overall this book is another adventurous entry in the series."

    "I actually found this book to just be OK. Great if you are a fan of this authors work, but not for anybody looking to pick up thier first Feist book. It's good, but not great and will likely not keep your attention like some of his other work. "
