The structure of the writing was different but well suited for the story that was told. There was a very flow to the writing. I enjoyed reading the book very much.
I’m not sure why but I just couldn’t get into it. I’ve finished all prime reads no problem and this I was just like please no. I finished it just to say I finished it because I can’t leave a book unfinished but it was just not good
Great fast-paced read. I could see the action and the characters clearly. I could so see this as a movie! I’m so excited it’s a “book 1”. Means there’s more coming! Bring it on!
Yasmin Amgoe made the characters come alive. I felt that I knew each character. The plot moved smoothly as a jet flying in calm air. This author is one to watch.
This book was a bit of an unusual story line with an unusual heroine. I appreciated the cultural nuances and occasional clashes as well as the moral struggles and contradictions
