Top critical review
Kiss of death
7 January 2017
I bought this book because of the reviews. Which is why I felt compelled to write THIS review, even though I could only make it a quarter of the way through this book (and that with gritted teeth).
It started well - nice action setting in what looked to be a really interesting world. Then it went down hill from there. Very rapidly. In a nutshell the book is very poorly written, exhibiting a considerable lack of maturity in character development, character scripting and plot development. It read like the author had sat down one day and written, without reading back over what she'd done. Repetitive in many places, full of irrelevant information and poorly executed interaction of characters that left me feeling like I was in a plastic world of barbie dolls. I don't mind cliche if it is done well. This was not.
