A disappointing book. I read the first one in a day, the second one in three days, and the last one in three weeks. Change of tone. Change of setting. Confusing cast of new characters. And-- most importantly-- an absence of real conflict for the first 2/3 of the book! Well, nothing beyond personality issues between characters that is. Violent and morally questionable decisions on the part of our young heroes later on in the story. They're like teen-age Jack Bauer(s) ("24") -- "darn it, we don't have a choice!" Ok for a mindless tv thriller geared for an older audience, but it felt strange and awkward for a "young adults"'s book.
