I'm glad I stumbled upon this novel by Jaxon Reed. The story was unique and the world building was wonderful and vivid. I enjoyed how real places and events were incorporated into the story in a flawless way that made it completely believable. Reed's writing style is fluid and entertaining. Usually I am not one for first person POV, but Reed did this exceptionally well and I found it to be quite enjoyable. All that being said, I felt there was a definite lack of tension in the story. The development of the revolution was underdone. It felt too easy and rushed. Taking more time to develop and expand the events leading to the revolution would have been much more believable and would have allowed Reed to create a great deal of suspense in the story. There could also have been a lot more done with the relationship between characters, namely De De and Marcus as well as developing tension between them and Connie. Overall I think it was a great read from a new author who has a lot of potential, and I look forward to what's to come!
