Love this book. The pace was just right for me, enough humor, enough sarcasm, lots of puzzles to be figured out and I LOVE THE CHARACTERS. SPOILER (if you haven't read this don't proceed): I'd have given it 5 stars but two things held me back. First, the SQUALES didn't do anything for me at first but I got over that when the alpha was speaking in their minds (I have the audiobook as well so it made it sound even more scary than when reading that I was actually under a blanket lol), and it was pretty heart stopping when the overseers were running after them. Second was because Tim had to die. Pft. He's probably my favorite of them all ... And yes I cried.
