I really wanted to like this book. I was waiting what seemed like ages for it to be released. ...and I just closed it for good in chapter six.
Never mind the stilted, boring prose, I could handle that. But Julian? If I had to read one more sentence about the main character fearing his advances but letting him touch her anyway, I was going to scream.
Sorry, author. The premise is fascinating but the characters and narrative couldn't keep me invested enough to read about the world.
