I received this book for an honest review. It was difficult getting into the book for a couple reasons. The first was the dialog between characters and the internal monologue that took place. The author did a lot of telling or stating facts instead of showing the reader through actions so they could come to there own/the authors conclusion. There were a lot of grammatical errors, misplaced words/commas/etc that took away from the story.
The plot encompasses love, destiny, friendship, and an upcoming war. The chapters switched between character perspective and sometimes this happened within the chapters. When that happened, it wasn’t always clear on who was describing what was happening. The plot had some unrealistic elements, especially when it came to military grade spy equipment and the love between Ryder and London. Overall, I think the author had a good idea when creating the plot but wasn’t able to execute it 100%.
