This is more of a 3 and a half star review. It has taken me since the day this book came out up until this day to actually get through this book. I liked the characters and the concepts well enough, but it was so SLOW! Sometimes a whole day can be a chapter or a year goes by in a paragraph. It's unpredictable and not much drives the blot along.
I wouldn't recommend this book. It has a lot of potential and yet really couldn't keep me interested for almost three years. Nice cover just the same. But I'm not picking up the sequels.
