She shows them no mercy. Deal with it or don’t. People have dropped dead on the spot.

I really wish that these problems had been fixed in the outlining stage, but certainly they should have been sorted out by the time the manuscript made it through several drafts and edits and rewrites. For story-telling purposes—plot, pacing and all that—I decided against a detailed recap. I need you to know Sep 10, karen rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve read a lot of reviews on this book and I see a lot of people were disappointed with the way the story shifts in the middle.

One of the “spared” -exceptions to the rule- is Alex a 17 year-old girl living with her aunt, after both her parents were killed in a helicopter accident three years earlier.

This is strange since it means that Chris broke off from the main party to go north instead of sticking with Peter and his men, who went west.
