Emily I put this one on hold a couple weeks ago! How is it?

Lucy I'm not sure. The writing is a little disconcerting because the third person narrative as well as all of the dialogue is written in not-quite-fluent English with an obvious Russian accent. The placement of prepositions and adjectives are all out of order. The characters are compelling, though, so I'm interested to see what happens to them and if i'll end up enjoying the writing.

Emily I have too many books out right now so am wondering where this should fall in my list?
