Reviews of speculative fiction, YA, middle grade, and graphic novels, along with stray thoughts, links, and pictures.
This is a neat story with an interesting protagonist, but the prose didn't work for me. I think if the entire thing had been first person, I'd have liked it a lot more. The sentence level writing in the third person sections just grated on me.
That's a pretty specific complaint - and I can be very picky about prose. I'm going to suggest you read a different review before deciding on this one.
