When I first started reading this book, i thought it was great. I found the idea behind the book really good, i read the first half eagerly in just a few hours. Unfortunately after a while I felt like it kind of dragged on, a lot of words but nothing really happening. A lot of gore, but no real story. I did find it good enough to keep reading the rest of the trilogy to see how it all ends though. An ok read if you like the genre.
