The Good: The opening scene of this novel was overall intriguing. It kept pulling you farther into those first pages. It story had good pace towards the beginning keeping you drawn in by answering long standing questions. The world created by author, Steve Feasey, was unique, mysterious, and compelling. Trey the main character is very relatable and kind. The internal battles he goes through are written beautifully. The minor characters, as well, have well developed personalities. The occasional humor is not out of place. The novel overall was a enjoyable read.
The Bad: I felt the middle of this novel drug out a little long. Also the major conflict seemed almost too convenient. Almost like it was thrown in just to have a conflict. But all the same it was action-filled. The ending of this book also laid out the sequel almost too perfectly. It stated the basic story sequence and this killed some suspense.
Ugly Updates: Steve Feasey has 4 novels in his Changeling series, all published in the UK.
