The book cover was badly damaged with no attempt to even repair it. Kind of disappointed because it wasn't as it was stated in the description. The book itself, physically speaking, was in great condition with only two or so minor page folds. As for the read, it was good and fell in line with other books in the series. I am happy with the purchase with the exception of the book cover. I would still, however, recommend it and buy from the seller again.
