Bought it 2 days ago, and am still reading it (So ill murder anyone that gives away the end! :P )

Thoughts so far:

The start is pretty dark compared to what i expected. The children crying into their bunks etc? Seemed pretty bleak :(

Aside from that, the world he has made is brilliant! Its so creative, and so very possible! I utterly LOVE the whole lawyer twist. It is simply genius :D

Also, i see some strong character ties to AF. Eg. Vasquez = Holly. Ditto = Mulch. Stefan = Root (Well, what i imagine the younger root was like), or maybe a form of Butler?

The head of developement for Myishi (Forget name - Just met her), sorta reminds me of Opal, but in a good version?

All in all, luvin it! :D

Great to hear you've got the book, I hope you really enjoy it, and it most definitely gets better near the end. In fact the end is the best bit. You'll be gagging for more like the rest of us in no time.

I started reading that but I got distracted (don't ask) anyways the creepy things remined me of speactars (soul sucking monster things) from Philip Pullman's His Dark Matirials.(summery: weird, And I Luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvved it, like all these people and all these worlds and a war against god and this scary power hungry lady with a golden monky demon (that I wan't to be when I grow up.)
It was awsome!!!! :focl: what was I talking about :unsure: ??????????

lol - Seems like you two liked him XD

He must have had such a hard life though. Only 18, and all that pressure?? :o

And he even blamed himself partly for what happened to his mum :(
