How Much I Read: All

Comments: Not being a YA reader, I read it just because the author’s tweets (@TracyClark_TLC) made me excited about it. And I did enjoy it. It’s well written and edited. I thought the pace was just right. I have to say I did not like the ending; to me it was too dark. This is the first book in The Light Key Trilogy, so I’m hoping the next book will put the characters back on a lighter course.
