The author takes his sweet time getting the story going. It really wasn't much of a page turner except for the fact I really wanted to find out what ended up happening in the end. Parts were entertaining while other parts felt stale and unpolished, or forced. I almost felt as though the last half or so was all planned out and written but someone said it wasn't long enough to publish so the author had to create a front half to make the page count requirement. Overall it's not a terrible read.
