This whole series took me back to my R.L. Stein days. Which was good. However, it took 4 whole books to even find out what the heck was going on!!! Don't get me wrong I had a pretty good idea but the author could have at least thrown me a bone and let me know I was on the right track. No I had to wait until the last few chapters of this book to even know if I was right. Thankfully I bought this whole series in two volumes years after they were published so I didn't have to wait! I hate waiting to know what happens next.
