I want to give thanks to the author for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a review, thank you so much.
I have to say, it was very interesting, something new and very captivating.
It’s descriptive, I almost felt like I was watching a TV show. I can’t remember which review I said that in, and it wasn’t meant as a good thing but, I feel different about this one. Feeling like I was watching a show worked for this story.
The writing was pretty good as well, the only problem I had though was that it was slightly choppy. Most of the time when I say something is choppy, I mean that it’s bad.
He did this. She did that. They did that over there. The writing being choppy, even a little bit, tends to make stories sound almost monosyllabic but this did have just enough detail to keep it slightly upbeat.
There was a lot of information for a first book but, oddly enough, it actually didn’t take away from the story, it only made it more fun to read.
Usually when there’s that much it makes the story feel overwhelming and difficult to read, at least by my standards however, that wasn’t the case here.
I don’t know if it was because it’s the first book in the series and it’s just giving the readers information or what but I really couldn’t get a feel for the characters, just some surface stuff. I’ll have to read the next book to find out about it and I look forward to it.
Mark your calendars for December 10th for a fun, slightly action-packed, mysterious ride with a few twists. I’d recommend this book for just about any age.
Thank you for reading my review.
