The second book in a row now that I have abandoned. Not a good feeling. This was just not very well-written and the story wasn't interesting enough to keep me engaged despite that. The structure of the narrative was a little jumpy and I was constantly left with questions or just slightly confused. Not terribly confused, just a bit. I think if I'd had the time to read this in a week or less, I would have stuck it out and finished it.
