...and they were FANTASTIC! i can't wait for the next book to come out (not till august). this is a must read series. it's action packed (not cheesy action) with some romance (but not so much that a guy wouldn't like it...in fact i think most guys would really like them) and a touch of fantasy/ sci fi. they are easy reads and rumor has it that a movie based on the books will be in production soon. seriously...read these books and let me know what you think!
