5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable & Durable, 9 Oct 2013
Having never done a triathlon before, I bought this purely based on the reviews and was not disappointed. It has seen me through all my training and the triathlon itself and is still being used regularly for both swimming and cycling.

I was a bit afraid that the elastic in the legs would fail but it hasn't at all and the running support is still strong and comfortable.

I really, really enjoyed this novel. It was exciting and fast-paced and the characters and concepts were well thought through and interesting.

The story was quite animal-based which kept me happy to start with but the addition of cut-throat pirates, underground politics, deception and someone who struggles to walk in high heels as much as I do just added to the fun.

The world building was brilliant and the cast of characters varied - from the moody and mysterious Merlin, charming and handsome Alexi and bitter but powerful Professor Diamandis. There was something for everyone.

I particularly liked Riqui, the main character and owner of the Doodle, because of… Read more
