I really wanted to love this, but it was frustratingly repetitive and full of unnecessary exposition. Too much is said and not shown, and then said again a few chapters later, but for all that not a lot actually happens. The characters didn't feel convincing and the ending was anticlimactic. A lot of cliches are used for the sake of filling out paragraphs or dialogue when they don't actually make sense in context. For a first book it's okay, but I don't understand the five star reviews.
