The main antagonist is ruthless, despicable, and really just a great antagonist, though kinda shallow...and could be a little less rapey...dude is extremely rapey.
After about a quarter way through, after you're used to all the characters and the overall premise, things start to get repetitious. Not just the storyline, but the writing as well -- you're constantly reminded of little details to a point where it becomes exhausting. With some strong editing this would be a very good book -- the overall story is enjoyable and entertaining, it's just too repetitive.
In the prologue, Benedictus is LEADING his people (This fact had been established twice.) and then there is this: "Benedictus let out his breath slowly. Here awaited his death. Here awaited the death of his people, the Vir Requis who'd once covered the world and now stood– only five thousand haunted survivors– behind him." Not only was it previously established that his people were behind him, but it had also already been made VERY clear (3-4 previous mentions) that his people were called "Vir Requis", not to mention the number 5,000 had also been previously communicated. This excerpt is from page 3 on my kindle. Page 3! I do understand that the author was perhaps trying to make it sound "prose-like" but as it is the cadence is choppy and poorly constructed. The repetition detracts more from the story than adds to it, and thus becomes a distraction and a hindrance when attempting to read, understand, and enjoy the narrative.
I will not be finishing this, I unfortunately don't think I could if I tried. It is a fascinating concept, I just wish the writing was smoother and more image and imagination evoking to read.
