I anticipated a much better read that the one I got. The story started really well. I liked the opening chapter. In fact, it hooked me. Normally, I don't mind novels with multiple viewpoints if they are well done. Had the author stuck with a couple of POV characters the story might have been truly a great read.
However, the volume of POV characters that marched into the story was difficult to keep up. Each chapter I wasn't sure who was going to be onstage. And several times, that is all that happened, a narrator told of events happening rather than putting the reader into the action. This got worse the farther into the story I got.
There were even a few minor characters that were POV characters who appeared only a couple of times and their appearance could easily have been eliminated with no problem.
Still, I wanted to know what happened so I stuck it out. Only to be extremely annoyed by the narrative ending of the story. It totally fell flat. The ending read as if it was just an extra chapter of notes that the author had in their file to explain the final events to the author and which she felt the reader needed. We don't. We know what happened to the bad guy and the good guys and we're good. We don't need to know what happens somewhere else to a secondary... no... not even a secondary, just a character who was simply a walk on.
Very disappointed as I do think this could have been told much better if the author had stuck with fewer POV's and less narration.
I'm not likely to read another of her books.
