Terrific story, bad editing, but worth it

This was a really terrific story. Very interesting, well-developed plot with complex twists, suspense, and even really good flashbacks. Characters were likeable, real, and compelling: honorable people who tried hard to do the right thing even when they had been treated...
This was a really terrific story. Very interesting, well-developed plot with complex twists, suspense, and even really good flashbacks. Characters were likeable, real, and compelling: honorable people who tried hard to do the right thing even when they had been treated badly. Really engaging read. The one drawback to this story, and one that makes me hesitate to buy the others, is that there were a lot of small copyediting and typographical errors throughout the book. Although the writing overall was good and sophisticated so I could forget I was reading something written by an author, rather than watching the story unfold, I'd be rudely and frequently reminded by encountering these errors. Often, the wrong word was used (like 'sight' instead of 'site'), which changed the meaning; punctuation was bad in a lot of places (lots of missing apostrophes and commas, for example); spelling was mangled here and there;and lots more. Normally, this many errors would cause me to walk away, but this was good enough that I read all 497 pages in spite of the distraction, and wanted more of them. Wish I could proof this for the author just so I'd be able in future to read the stories without the drawback of the disruptive editing flaws! Hate to pay for a book that might have just as many.

Meh.

I like the story but he has a very elementary writing style and horrible grammer/punctuation. This goes for the whole series.
