I grabbed this book because the cover caught my attention. I didn't realize it was part of a trilogy until there were only a few pages left of the book, and the story felt like it had only just begun. My disappointment is a good thing though, because I didn't want the story to end. This classic tale of good versus evil naturally unfolds as the author shows a hidden world. While this part of the tale takes place in the US, it feels like England. Looking forward to book 2. Sidenote: Could not help but envision SecondLife during the flying scenes.
