I enjoyed this book and think the author shows exceptional promise. The premise was interesting, the characters well-developed and the writing fluent but for one characteristic which I eventually came to find a little irritating. That was - for my taste - an over-use of adjectives. I began to feel that the author was trying a little too hard and that many sentences would have benefited from less florid prose. However, I did read it in two sittings and never thought of giving up: a good sign that I enjoyed it. I did find the ending a strange mix of satisfactory and unsatisfactory: it felt as if one of the major plot devices had been completely abandoned. Maybe there's a sequel in the works.
