I found myself rather disappointed at times when Keira, a trained and highly feared thief/assassin did not live up to her reputation and needed rescuing.
Other than that, this was a great story with a solid plot and beautifully animated characters. Do give it a try?
Author S.L. Wallace pens fast-paced action and twists with heroine/hero simmering attraction.
I personally can't stand fiction written in first person. I don't mind alternating perspectives if its done well, but in this case the perspective changed every other chapter.
I don't know if the author was trying on purpose to create some kind of trendy, stylized, artsy-fartsy effect, however, to me it read as being clumsy, awkward, juvenile, and amateurish.
Reading the same boring scenario more than once was a waste of time. No real new insights were revealed by switching perspectives.
I can't even tell if the story itself beneath the irritating writing style was good because I was so annoyed with the way that it was written that I stopped reading it.
I prefer to read a good story that's written well. Period.
Stylized writing can be interesting, but only if its done well.
Perhaps my criticisms are too harsh. I appreciate the work that goes into writing anything. The style was not to my personal liking, however, it may appreal more to others with different taste.
But a band of citizens is fighting against the evil elite, risking their lives to help improve the world.
It is an interesting look into a world that ours is turning into.
Recommended for readers if sci-fi and alternate worlds or for anyone who likes stories with a mix of mystery, espionage, and relational conflict.
