I am a good guy.
Keir Sarafian may not know much, but he knows himself. And the one thing he knows about himself is that he is a good guy.

But I really did dislike this book. But I think this deserves 1 1/2 stars, though I'm too much of an asshole to rate it just plain ol' one star, so it's two stars :|
I hated this book. Hated it because of the main character.
What an asshole. What an IDIOT.
I'm glad that at the end Keir...more
