2.5 rounded up to 3 GR stars

Like many readers, I am a bit bothered by the book's melodrama and stereotypes, which kept it from being a great book. Characters lack a lot of depth, and most were either completely good or completely bad. One of the main antagonists was a character who seemed so bi-polar, but the author didn't really delve into why he was that way.

With that said, it was an easy book to pick up, with a writing style that flowed, and I enjoyed spending time with those characters who were generally pretty pleasant (I mean....who wouldn't??)

I just felt it's a story with a lot of potential had it not been so "white-washed."

I just learned there is a related novel put out--Glory Over Everything. I do think I may try it to see if the author has developed the characters any further.
