And Save Her Buttsave her butt these books it s retty much the opposite Not only that but the relationship actually takes time to develop Sure there s the whole Oh dear he thinks I m a boy thing standing in the way but even so it s a carefully crafted romance and I appreciate that I didn t really know how it was going to lay out and I was afraid it was going to be too dramatic or whatever but it wasn t It was great Gah I don t want to give too much away But basically if you ve read the other books and haven t read this one yet YOU NEED TO READ THIS ONE And I m País íntim pretty sure it ll make you happy If you haven t read these books at all well read themAnd now I m going to run around shouting BUM RAGS and BARKING SPIDERSGood day I have to say I that I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series I don t think that it is for everyone as it is uite odd but I know I uite liked it Rating clarification 4 starsPlotI cannot speak highly enough of thelot It completely captivates you and is action Under Lock and Key packed from start to finish there is never a dull moment from cover to cover If you are looking for an easy and funage turner look no furtherPotential spoilers ahoy In this installment Alec figures out that Darrin is a girl and not only that she is in love with him Add that in with a voyage from Tokyo to California Mexico and then New York in a genetically modified flying whale specimen All the while World War I battles and drama ensue Suff.
