Luckily, the concept of the book intrigued me.
The story is never boring and in some parts, quite fascinating — something every sci-fi story should aim for.
What I could've done without was the unnecessary love story, the slightly cliche third act, and a couple of paragraphs where we get too much description. E.g. "This character is wearing this. It is this color. Their eyes are blue." etc...
But overall, it's very well-paced and well worth a read.
There were so many basic spelling errors and grammatical mistakes.
I get the impression that the author wrote it and then published it without anyone else looking through it to find any problem areas.
Very first page calls a steed (horse) a 'stead'. Mentions 'taking in deep lung fulls of rich air' instead of 'lungfuls'.
Insists on using 'comprising of' (of is NEVER used with comprising as the word itself means 'consisting of')
Example of a paragraph which turned me off:
On this occasion, Steven had had to quell a feeling of rising panic. He had taken the straight tarmac path that ran up the middle of the site. He had stopped to view on piece of sculpture more closely. Out of the corner of his eye, he had seen the man strolling in the same direction. The man had stopped to look at a statue of himself, and he had seemed to be keeping his distance. Setting off at a greater pace, Steven had barely drawn breath. The sharp tap of the hastened footsteps had followed him.
How many uses of the word HAD were there in that paragraph. She only needed to use it once as she could easily have left out most of them and changed the other verb. This would make the text flow. Instead it is hard and makes it look like a child has written it.
Sorry, but not for me.
The story rattles along at a fast pace, with deft plotting and an amusing awareness of IT marketing ethos.
Don't start this book late at night if you have to get up early. You just cannot put it down!
