Okay, so I did really like this book overall. Great characters, great story, great action & adventure, great intrigue, great relationship-building, great twists, etc!
But I was **really** bothered with how this was a real-world with just a few fantastical elements thrown in. I don't know why it bugged me SO MUCH, but it did, to the point of a 3 star rating. It probably won't bug you and you'll want to give the story 5 stars.
