My Review:  
As for my reviews I normally only do one book at a time, but lately I have looked at some of my books and decided to try doing some book series reviews. So here is two books within a series that since they are the only two I have read and will probably not get the rest I am doing them together.  

This series is based on a game that my granddaughter Sammy got me hooked on. I thought since I loved the game so much that it would be great to read the series. 

Well as I said, I do love the game and play pretty regular. But for the books not so much. They are fast reads of course but for me since I was way past the books in the game, the books did not hold my attention as much as I thought.  I did finish each one but will not be picking up the third, fourth or fifth book. 

So for the reasons above I will be giving each of the books above a Breath of Life rating of:

   Three Clock Rating!! 

Disclosure: I did not receive the above books in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
