Review: Cover art is worthless. Can’t tell what is going on.

This was a very uninspired attempt to finish a novel that gifted so much agony. To be fair, there may have been a problem with the e-ARC copy as the paragraphs would end suddenly, and a new scene or storyline would commence from out of nowhere. Really impossible to track the plot and storyline.

What little I did discern of the storyline was that it jumped around and between moments in time and space with little regard to informing the reader. The old catch-up game with regard to discerning the authors intent with building their world.

The character development was non-existent to the point where their backstories were meaningless in any emotive sense to the here and now. The author attempts to sweep the reader up in a quickly moving storyline where events outpace the characters personalities.

Taking a knee on this one.
