Don’t care for the cover, but loved the book.
The reason I loved the book so much wasn’t because of the story, which is good, BTW. It starts out pretty slow, not much really happening until half way through, and then it develops at breakneck speed.
What really sucked me into this book was how the author set the mood. I can’t really describe it, but the words on the pages made me feel the story, rather than read it. From the first page I was immersed in the book, fully inside the characters and the action.
It just got really, really good, when I read the words “to be continued”. Boy, that sucked…but just gave me incentive to get the second book right away.
