Good grief! I took a pretty long time for me to get into this one. I wanted to give up about 3 hours in, but I stuck with it. I was glad that I did in a way, but I'm not completely sold. Hopefully the next one turns out to be better. I'd like for it to be not as long, too.
The alternating POV was helpful, but I would have liked Bradwell's POV. He's a main character, but he's never heard from. El Capitan's character was seriously weird. So was Ingershop or Ingershell or whatever the eff his name was. A lot of things seemed to be figured out so conveniently among Pressia, Bradwell, and Partridge. And I was really disappointed with how short one character stuck around. Ugh.
Anyway, this book is certainly not a must read, but it's quite imaginative and different. I was entertained for the most part. Check it out if you don't have too many others on your TBR list.
