At first I wrote this really long review detailing almost everything that happened and what I felt about it. When I was done it was more like a synopsis and not a review so I deleted it. I asked myself why did I have to write it all out and it made me wonder but in the end it made reading this book and writing this review easier because as I wrote I got out all my issues. I ranted and I raved about my problems but then I gushed and I praised about what I loved.

The main thing that needs to be kno

Nate in particular is there but gets barely any real attention in the first part of the boo ...more

This story is brutal and honest, yet tender. The characters are very complex and diverse. The story is well written and engaging. I especially enjoyed the character Julian. He showed substantial personal growth and my feelings about him significantly changed over the course of the story.

What a surprisingly intense and interesting book. Very much in the same vein as The Archer but with much less subterfuge and twisting plot. I am glad I got a chance to read this one.
