Lackey utterly ignores the old advice to show, not tell. The book suffers for it.

And the pacing in this thing is an utter mess. The plot meanders and stumbles and wheezes along and is just weirdly disjointed.

There are germs of something better here, but this is like a rough draft that hasn't been pared and fleshed out and thoroughly edited.
