This book had me at first. I was enjoying it until it reminded me of the energizer bunny and kept going and going and going. Not only is this book extremely long (not in a good way) but the hokey religious tones are so abundant it made me cringe. The ending was so full of cliches (religious ones, some of the worst) that it had me changing my rating of three stars down to two. The writing is actually quite good except for the length and the tone the Author set wasn't bad either. If only it ended sooner and I wouldn't have wasted hours and hours finishing it to see what happened... it just wasn't worth it.
