I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.
Oh, this picked up pace and rhythm and everything after Chapter Two, and I could not be happier! It's tighter and better written, like the author found her pace.
I am enjoying this very, very much.
And also, there is a man with a long, auburn braid. That will get me, every time. *looking at you, Con Riley, with your Saving Sean*
There is an extra spice here, with people of several different colors and ethnicities.
I love it.
