I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for my advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

What a strange and disorganized story! I enjoyed the weirdness, the confusion, and the not-knowing-what's-going-on when it was obviously done intentionally. But there were two many times where it just seemed like an oversight. I was often wondering who was speaking, I couldn't follow the descriptions of locations, and I had a hard time understanding the purpose of several of the characters. There is the good kind of oddd and then there is this. It just didn't work for me. The author has to give the reader something. At the very least I should be able to follow the world-building. I wanted to feel immersed in the plot but the descriptions of the surroundings were incomplete or erratic giving me no chance for imagery. This honestly led me to not caring about the plot events or the characters. I felt bored quite often and just slugged through the story.

2 stars for concept. This could've been great with the right execution.
