I received a free copy of this for review from Goodreads' First Reads program.

I really wish that I had more to say about this book, especially given how long it took me to complete it. It was never a bad book, don't get me wrong, but it just never really clicked with me.

The story was fairly interesting, though it certainly had its flaws. The characters were diverse and generally charming, for all that they sometimes made stupid choices. The world building was obviously well thought out, even if...more

However. The playout, especially dialog, has many similarities to an RPG adventure game ('what is that?' 'it's a~ I got in~' 'where is~' 'it's~' 'tell me more about[previously mentioned thing of no apparent significance]'), and the info-dumping drove me up the wall. It was also not very exciting -- the writing, I mean. Even when reading parts where a lot is happening, I was intensely bored.
I sincerely hope the author might rewrite i...more
