My thoughts
While I did enjoy the story and it has the potential to become a really good series to pick up and read ,and I did like the characters a lot, and while it did pull me in ,there was just to much going on though out the story, that at times it felt like the author couldn't make up her mind on what part of the story she was telling. So she just put it all in to in story line.but even with all that going on I still want to pick up the next book.With that said I would love to say thinks to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity as well as the chance to read and read a new to me author , in change for my honest opinion.
