I bought this book very randomly, I am a sucker for new authors and love to be the first to discover things before they become mainstream.
I'll get the bad stuff out of the way first. I think a fair comment would be, 'in this universe better written books exist.' This becomes evident almost immediately, HOWEVER, this is not an issue for anyone with a ounce of imagination. The rich and vibrant world with its emotive characters shine through every time. The world created by the author can hang with literally anything I can think of. There are chapters that make me cringe at how savage they are, while others make my jaw drop with surprise. Out of all the twists and turns I think I only called one thing right!!
I can't be the only person who is unhappy with how mainstream media is. The company with the biggest advertising budget wins, regardless of the content. I think it's important to support people like the author K Massop, who are at least trying to bring to the table something different. This book is bargain. Hands down in my book of the year list.
Can't wait for the next one.
