Okay.. What? This book had so much to offer, but he delivery fell a little short for me. I loved the main idea of the book but it just fell short as the story progressed. I wish the motives had been a bit more clear with the father. The writing however in some parts was beautiful and held a poetic promise to it and in other parts felt rushed and if the author threw something down. I think this book could be better if the editor or author both had gone back over it one final time. The plot was great and i enjoyed reading the book the first half as it captivated me, but as it went on and nothing progressed or developed i felt disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, this book should at least be experienced but I think it just wasn’t for me. I would still like to see a book 2 and maybe have questions answered and it be in someone else’s point of view? Or perhaps not… It just ended so abrupt and i felt not everything was answered nor tied together. The cover i loved and that’s what drew me into the book. Some of the characters were written great and they played their part well, while others felt like they flip flopped throughout. So all in all i will give this 3.5 stars. Interesting read, but just fell a little short. Thank you to the publisher for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review.
