I don’t like to pan books as a rule. I usually will put it aside and re-read at a later date just to make sure it wasn’t me or my circumstances. But there are so many things wrong with this one I don’t know where to begin. The prolog sets up a character and a situation that creates certain expectations. There are a lot of little things that just don’t sit right through the first couple of chapters and then it all just falls apart. The writing is really choppy. I don’t know if it was the novella length of the book that didn’t give the author enough time to develop the situations and characters or the lack of a good editor. All I know is I was really disappointed with this story.
