did not like it


The female lead served much as a sex toy than a plot device. Missed great opportunities for character development throughout the book. More focused on action than an engaging story, maybe that is why I found myself not immersed into the reading at all. Would like to see the author use his knack for action in a smaller role while focusing more on the characters in the story.

Alija I get the feeling the author is into fetish. Somewhat unnecessary graphic sex scenes with very little addition to the plot.
Breaks immersion frequently.
Story moves at a blistering pace yet it keeps being incredibly predictable. After a 100 pages you can almost sense what happens 10 pages ahead.
