This review is really late! I read this book weeks ago.
This book wasn’t for me, but let’s start with what I liked. The characters were interesting making me want to know what would happen to them. The overall plot also was great with action and suspense.
The problem was that it was a little slow in between the action. I also didn’t like how the narration skipped from character to character. It felt sporadic and all over the place. I don’t mind the POV from 2 or 3 characters, but this was too much with views from lots of side characters and villains. I don’t like villain view points because that normally gives away part of the mystery surrounding the plot. I know these dislikes are my own opinion, and other people enjoy that in a book. I might have missed it, but I never knew how old the main character Ben was. That was just a small annoyance. I pictured him around 20.
With that said, there were some really great entertaining scenes that I enjoyed. If you like books with an overall view of all the characters then try this one out, you might like it.
