Definitely had mixed feelings on this one. The book started off with a bang. A girl is kidnapped and "the Chain" is responsible. Going against the Chain breaks the link which will get you and your daughter killed. Craziness! Couldn't wait to see where it would go. Unfortunately, the book could've been much shorter and would've ended up being better. There were places that I ended up just skimming because it really seemed to be a bunch of gibberish that really wasn't needed. Then it would get crazy again and so on and so on. It did have a good ending and loved the fact that it ended with chapter 77 (read the book and you'll know why).
