    I still have to read

    I still have to read this one. I didn't like Shiver as much as Linger, mostly bescuae Shiver was very... I don't know, boring/ordinary? No real life in characters for me there. And then came Cole and brought the dynamics and so on. So I have high hopes for the third one. But I really doubt there will be a fourth book. "/ wasn't this supposed to be a trilogy all along?

    I thought this book was just brilliant and I loved how Nanook had to help and Wizard Aduro was free for just a second to help Tom on his quest.

    Arachnid is fun and great because Tom gets help from Nanook and there is a lady who knows about their quest.

    I love all of the Beast Quest series because they are fantastic and the stories are really interesting and exciting.
