I downloaded this whilst it was on a 99p special deal as the book plot sounded exciting. Unfortunately the story felt far too long and didn't hold my interest. A cast of characters are introduced, none of whom really get to know.
Perhaps the book more aimed at teenage readers, there are hardly any adult characters in this city, the teens seem to run the place!

There was a noticeable absence of adult characters for the majority of the book, it seemed… Read more
