All in all, this is a very strong debut novel. To make matters even better, Hulick was contracted to write at least three novels, and the second has a cover already unveiled--even though pre-orders from Amazon indicate that it's a good nine months away from being released. The third should be out in 2013, so they're due to come out at a decent clip. I enjoyed it enough that I'm excited to see the follow-ups, and I hope it sells well enough that the three aren't the only novels we get in the series. I think there's a lot more that can be done with the book than we got here.
