This story was complex, filled with interconnected small details that you really had to pay attention to. The pace of the novel was inconsistant. One minute it would be so slow that you got bored, the next minute it would speed up so suddenly, you felt obligated to go back and see if you missed something. The characters were all over the place. They were supposed to be close, but they hated each other more than they liked each other. I suppose this is the author trying to be realistic, but it just made the reader feel distant from the characters, who were unstable ond overall unlikable. The action scenes were confusing, and you had to go back and reread them. The ending is abrupt and inconclusive. In order to read this story, one has to be patient enough to read it slowly and carefully. However, the cover is awesome, but do not be fooled into reading it unless you are willing to commit.
