Previous reviews have said that this book needed an editor. I'll not disagree. I will disagree with the previous review. I understood that the Engilsh that was used in the story, was simply the way that they talked during the period they were in. The story did lack the simple description of a room, but I did enjoy the story, and the characters. I look forward to the next if there is actually going to be one.

The story is good, I could see some more books coming out of it. It could have been great, but the writing style could use some work. I feel that a good editor would make a big difference. Conversations between characters just don't read well, almost like someone translated it from another language without a good grasp of how English 'flows'. I hope the author continues writing, maybe with a college level course or two to help with style. Lots of potential.

    Decent read. It pulls you in and has a few twists.

    Written by 2?

    The first half of the book was great, well written, good story line. The second half of the book seems to be written like a play script. "This character said this, feels like this, then goes here. Then the next character replies this, feels like this, and then goes there." It's really weird. Had to keep reading to find out the ending, but it was not well written and really hard to get through the 2nd half of the book.
