Actual Rating 4.5 Please note I wrote this review as I was reading the book.SPOILERS AHEADThis book was painful, but not because it was bad. It was painful because of what the Wizard King could do and I couldn't do anything to stop it. And Heath. Can I please say I hate Heath? 'Cause I hate Heath.It was obvious PAINFULLY OBVIOUS that Heath was bad news and that he was in league with the Wizard King. For once in my life, I felt bad for Bryon Swain. I was all for hitting him with a board.Now on to the Wizard King...I hate him too. Though for some reason he doesn't seem as bad as The One but I'm only on page 165 so that might change. BREAKING NEWS THIS IS NOT TURNING INTO MAXIMUM RIDE: THE FINAL WARNING As of page 206-WHY ARE YOU JOKING ABOUT THE PORCH BURNING INCIDENT WITSY? WHY?Ok I'm on page on page 219. I'm convinced that Pearl ,NOT RAT, is lost. Forever. Why Patterson, why?I just finished. And OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD! TALK ABOUT A PLOT TWIST! BUT I WAS RIGHT! HEATH/PEARCE WAS I LEAGUE WITH THE WIZARD KING! OHMYGOD!So overall, the book was amazing. You should read it.
