Monica Somebody else used the word unsatisfying, and I tend to agree. I do like the writing style. The idea though, especially the end, even though it's meant to be a cliffhanger (at least it looks like that to me), its very VERY UNSATISFYING! Give me detail, give me scope, give me purpose. And you cannot get that from the last paragraph, where the cliffhanger is placed. Idea:good! Writing style: ok. Execution & finishing a: lacking! But, as I'm not a writer, I sit in awe at the imagination & drive & dedication that it takes to write a book, and an above average book like this one!
