If I had to choose one word to sum up RAID it would be: RUSHED This book was short, too short for the story line, it was very rushed, the whole thing was fast paced, but not in a good way. Don't get me wrong I loved the book, but it could have been so much better, so much more than it was. I was actually pretty disappointed in this book, I loved it, but it was not up to KA standards in my opinion. It was not what I felt the teaser chapters promised it to be, what KA's previous work promised it would be. I'm giving it 4 stars because I did like it a lot, but I was very disappointed.
