So I’ve been contemplating this review for a while.
I have known the author for many years, and am even mentioned by him in the dedication. I encouraged his story writing, read many many many scenes (sometimes multiple times), and sometimes even brought up holes in the story as it was written.
It’s difficult to objectively review a book that you watched being written start to end. That being said, I will endeavor to give a fair review of the story.
My overall rating for the book is 4.5 rounded up to a 5.
