This is a buddy review I did with nath over at Breezing Through. I had a lot of fun talking with nath about this book, but it did make me realize I’m not a very critical reader. While we discussed the book I had to admit a number of things in the book were problems!
This is also a new author I read so this is another of my New Author Challenge 2013 books. This is hosted by the Literary Escapism blog.
