Don't get me wrong this is a good story but it's not a great story. Maybe it's a first book in the series and it's just going to take off but after r..Show More »eading the great reviews I had high hopes and ended up feeling rather underwhelmed. Ace just irritated me. He was never a hero nor an anti-hero, he never overcame this 'blackness' he apparently contained and saw the light, did his good deed etc. In fact his blackness never seemed all that dark. I never got the feeling he was capable of dark deeds and all in all he was just kind of meh. I am very glad I didn't use my credits for this and got it at a good price otherwise I think I would be feeling a bit cheated. I think this is the kind of book you read if you are awaiting a release and are finished with all your other books. I probably will read the next installment just not yet. Of note the writing style is very good without any grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or plot mistakes. I just think that the author could have developed her characters better. I never cheered anyone on nor did I wish anyone a slow painful death lol. This confirms that I never became emotionally invested in any characters.
