Numbers is a fast-paced story, with enough reveals & plot twists to keep the reader engaged. The author excels at descriptions of both characters & scenery so the reader can easily picture everything that's happening. However the dialogue was weaker & did not flow naturally. I also would have liked to see more of Destiny's thoughts & feelings. Some of the plot points seemed a bit too convenient, but the ending sets up well for a sequel & I look forward to learning more about the new characters.  (+2 votes)
