All right, I have to say this book wasn't a bad story. However, it wasn't told very well, and I kept thinking this has to be the work of a first-time author. I honestly have no idea if it's his first attempt or not, but it sure read like it. Can't point directly to the problems, but just as a whole, it doesn't all fit.
