This seems to be along the lines of some of the newer books I have seen lately. I definitely think it had an audience, but sadly it isn't for me. The writing style had a nice flow to it, which I liked, but the story itself seemed to drag. There was a lot of backstory and build up to the beginning. It lost my attention during that part. I just don't think this book is for me.
The cover has a unique design, which I do like. It's different from the usual without overly standing out. It works at drawing your attention, but the artistry itself isn't my style.
