Characters, Plotting And Development:
This genre of novel is often hard for me to read as I am usually not a fan of dystopian stories, but I found this one interesting as the author created a book designed to grab you and not let go. The ending of the book has a surprise in store. J. R. Stewart plotted twists and turns and mystery into this story and did so very well. Over all, this was a very interesting read that held my attention and the plotting, pacing, and character development were in line with the story.
