This book held a lot of promise. Sounded like a fun read with a really interesting twist of a premise. Sadly, it wasn't that.
I could only make it 40% in before giving up. The thing is SO overwritten. I mentioned on Twitter that I don't think the author, James Bennett, ever met an adjective that he didn't like. And use! Dear GOD, the man needs an editor with a store of red pencils.
Reading became like wading through mud. Thick, sticky mud.
It became really unpleasant and that's when I decided to set it aside. Too bad.
But on the upside, that's a series I don't need to add to the "get it" list. :)
