I couldn't finish this. I got to page 203, which is about halfway through, and it wasn't getting any better. The story wasn't really going anywhere. I read the couple of last chapters so I can say this - it's pretty predictable.
But I couldn't go through with it. Juvenile writing, half-assed world building (world building? WHAT WORLD? UNITED SENTRY STATES? ARE YOU SERIOUS
), and the characters were bland.
I'm sorry. But with such a beautiful cover, this book was bad.
