Disappointing narrator

Distracting voice which detracted from the story itself but also didn’t seem to fit some of the characters.

A rollercoaster ride, full of twists and turns.

Overall, really enjoyable. Lots of intrigue and our intrepid shero is the guide. If I have one gripe, it’s that the prose is sometimes overwritten.
