I have been excited to read this book since it came out, but wasn't sure if I wanted spend that kind of money for it. I finally decided to spring for it, and am greatly disappointed! This book took me 30 minutes to read, the pages are not whole pages, but half pages. If you want a good book well worth the money read "What Stands In A Storm"
