My Rating & Review:

This story has all the parts to be a great read for me, but it just didn't seem to ever really come together for me.

The characters are there, they are good.  The story line is good and the world is really interesting.  Like really really interesting - I am really loving the world this author has built.

I hardly ever have bad things to say, and really these thoughts are not bad - the book overall is ok - I just didn't love it, I felt like I need more flow and connectivity throughout the story and the characters.  I was not immediately sucked in, however I was totally intrigued by John and what was happening to him.

The formatting in my review copy was a little hard to follow, but it wasn't horrible, and this might be different in the printed or amazon editions.  My review copy was from the author in exchange for the review.

I think readers who like PRN and Supernaturals will enjoy this world and like the story.  I will be checking out Choices for sure to see what happens for these characters!
