Opinion of Books
I think that both of these books were some of the best stories I have ever read. They were heartwarming, dangerouse and exiting. My favorite of the two was the first book in the series, becuase it had more action and suspense, and if you looked away and lost your place something new would have happened that you didn't expect. I also liked it because there was a lot of detail and the writer had to described everything well, making it easy to imagine. That is my favorite part of a good book. Over all, these two books were very interesting and I loved both of them, but I have to say I enjoyed reading the first book in the series more.
