This book had an awful lot going on, too much really to build a cohesive, enjoyable story. Even though it was full of action and drama, I actually forgot I read this book. I had started rereading it before parts of it jogged my memory. This book isn’t worth the time.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
