Another issue I had with this story was that the reader isn't allowed to figure out the mystery on his own. The story is told from everyone's point of view at one point or another. It's far too obvious who the villain is, and the author goes out of her way to tell part of the story from his point of view. It seemed a blatant attempt to curry sympathy for him from the reader, but instead, it was silly. How is the reader supposed to enjoy the "mystery/suspense" element of this story if we know who the villain is and what his motives are?
Lastly, the story dragged. It went on and on. After the climactic end of the adventure-ish part of the story, it went on for another several chapters. I felt like it could have all been wrapped up a lot sooner and a lot cleaner. I know this is the first in a trilogy, but there was little-to-no setup for the next book. It would have been nice to get a little peek at what's coming.
All in all, it was just okay for me. It wasn't dreadful, but it certainly won't be staying on my Kindle for future re-reads. If you can borrow it from a library, at least save yourself the money.
