My rating: 1 of 5 stars
The premise for the plot is interesting and holds promise for something much better. That said, I found this book to be substandard and in need of major rewriting/overhaul. Writing a negative review is never simple but try to understand my reasoning. Grammar is important. Stories told from one point of view should remain in that point of view unless for a very good reason. Suspense is not added by dropping threads in lieu of something that seems more interesting half-way through the book. If you cannot capture your reader in the first 1,000 words you are very likely to lose them. Slow beginnings are not good, and are even worse when they remain slow through the first half. Suspension of belief only works when it’s not so far out in left field it’s in the forest. This takes us back to grammar and punctuation; have someone look at your book from an editing aspect. I received an evaluation copy from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. This is my opinion and may not mirror your own.
