did not like it

Horrid.

1) Not well edited. Mistakes everywhere in spelling, syntax, punctuation and grammar.
2) Uses too many cliched phrases like "hot on his heels." This is supposed to be a dark fantasy, not a contemporary one. Really does not fit style.
3) The prose is abominable. Dialogue is decent, characters are a little wooden, but I had to skip over the descriptions because they were so contrived and colloquial.
4) Romance is unbelievable and poorly written.

This was very obviously a marketing ploy to tie-in with the game. While I thought the game was decently interesting, this book was not. Even the history of the book and the game do not match. The writer should stick to dialogue and get an editor or ghostwriter to do the prose.

Very disappointing. Could not finish.
