Wow... I really wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started this novel because up front, you're told it's different than anything you've ever read. Definitely true! At first, the novel started a little slow but then it built up more and more. The pace ended up moving at a steady speed. The novel is told through Stewarts POV so that's always a breath of fresh air for me. I'm so used to reading novels told from the female lead's perspective. Although, I have to admit, I enjoyed The female lead and would've been interested to see a lot more from her perspective to swap it up a bit. The author's new spin on hell as a corporation who sells the "formula" is pretty genius - totally the most creative spin on hell I've read in a while. There are a few places where the writing style felt more like I was reading a dictionary of sorts - pretty formal and felt almost apart from the novel, but overall, it wasn't a hindrance. Overall a really thought provoking read that I enjoyed but I'm not jumping up and down screaming get it, get it. If you like fantasy and enjoy something a little different then definitely get it. I think the ebook was only $.99 so definitely worth that plus a little more. Can I just say the cover is a work of art??! It's really pretty amazing.Was this review helpful?

Bizarre, but interesting story. I found the writing to be solid and approachable, even if it did contain too many descriptors (a personal preference). I was annoyed whenever a word broke across a line, but that has nothing to do with the writer. Overall, this is a solid book and should appeal to a wide audience of people who enjoy paranormal or sci-fi books (even though it only generally fits those categories).Was this review helpful?
