This book kind of freaked me out. Not in a bad way, but in the fact that this is fairly realistic. I mean the description of these horrific events is pretty believable, and have occurred, elsewhere, in much smaller instances, but still it's kinda scary. The story in this book follows many different people around and sometimes the transition is just from paragraph to paragraph. Honestly, it took sometime getting used to this type of multiple points of view, the transitions were just abrupt. The writing was easy to follow and the story was captivating, up to a point. I'm not sure exactly where in the book, but at some point we just lost some steam and the ending felt rushed. I understand this is supposed to be a prequel to a book publish last year, but I haven't read that one. I really enjoyed the story, and the characters, and I would have LOVED the book if there weren't so many typos and errors throughout the book. They were numerous and distracting so I wasn't able to enjoy the story as much as I should have. I think this author is talented, and writes well enough that I get freaked out, but the books just needed some serious polishing.
