Even though this was a "first reads" book, therefore free, I shuddered when I looked at it. It appears self-published, and there is usually a reason. It has lots of narrow margins, double spacing, and spaces between paragraphs. And, it turned out to be the first in a series. I thought I would not like it.

I could not have been more wrong. It is a great story, the cultural references feel right, and I akm looking forward to the next in the series.
