Pretty good, but no action until the end. The story is told by going back and forth between characters in the first person and also in and out of different time periods. By about halfway though it gets easier to follow cuz you are finally used to that. Overall the story ends up being interesting but it drags.
I have read several of K L Slater’s books and they were pretty good. However this one was painful to get through. It was boring and a slow read. If I could give it a zero I would.
Hard to keep up with the bouncing back and forth in time. Why not put all the past together then go into the present. Stopped reading 2/3 through story. Read last chapter & didn’t feel l missed much.
