I received this book from a First Reads giveaway.
I really only started to like it in the last two chapters. The rest was exposition upon exposition, telling instead of showing. It seems like an extended prologue, but it had some promise, and I might give the next book in the series a shot.
There are some typos and punctuation errors, and the writing is fine at best. I'm glad I was able to try it without paying and being disappointed.
