It was because the first few chapters were very confusing to me. Too many characters were introduced. For example Jagger who works as Security which has a prosthetic arms. In the beginning, I had the impression that he was something like Robocop but something just does not ring true/logic. How many would hire people with prosthetic to be the Head of Security?
This and add on with various member of the Tribe and introduction of their higher technology- invisible cloak and what not made me lot track of the story. I was not sure how to view the story - futuristic? Sci-fic? Moreover, their unique names of the Tribe members like Creed, Phin, Elias and the most confusing was Arella who happens to be neaveh; who happens to be the word "heaven" spelled backwards; made my head spin.
In the beginning, it was not specified how many are they in the Tribe and their ages. Thus, I was quite surprised when there was kids in the Tribe too. Ageless.
Another thing was the mysterious plan "Agag" by the Tribe. The plan seems rather complicated to me and at parts quite technical which I have difficulties in following.
I was getting tired reading this but half way through the book, the story starts to grow interesting as the pace picks up. Am glad I was able to go through the book.
I love the unexpected twist in the end of the story. I liked this book well enough but I think this is one of those books that I would read once only.
I received this book from the publisher, Thomas Nelson Publishing, in exchange for an honest review .

Wanted to love it
I so wanted to love this book when I snatched it up as a daily find. The premise immediately grabbed my attention and I wanted to read this story. When I started reading though I had such trouble staying with it. The characters did not feel fully developed and the writing felt jerky to me. I found myself having to reread the action scenes as it wasn't always clear what was happening. About halfway through the struggling eased up and I started to get somewhat interested again but that just felt like too long to me to have to read before the story "got good" and even then things still felt choppy to me. The one huge positive I can say for it is that the ending did make me think and threw me for a bit of a loop.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
