While we did manage to finish this book I honestly feel it should have been shelved and no review written. However, since we did finish it I will write and post the review for all to read. First off, the writing was poorly edited and contained entirely too much in the way of fancy descriptions for nearly everything the characters could see or feel. This gets distracting and annoying after the first scene. The characters were unimaginative, flat cardboard cutouts and never developed along the way. The plot failed in delivery, pace, and the sheer number of inconsistencies which ruined any hope left for an enjoyable read. I received an evaluation copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest opinion and review. In no way has this influenced our opinion.
