I got this free from tor.com and on the one hand, it's cool that I got a book for free...but on the other hand, I have to buy the second book for $3.99 and it's barely over 100 pages. Under-handed is what that is. You sucked me in...and I caved, I needed the ending to this wholly unique experience that I had with this book. Well done TOR 👏 (Reading of said book to commence soon, hopefully).
With an almost frenetic pace...or maybe that was just me, that day I read it. Whatever it was, I found myself racing to read this. I even found myself telling people at work about it. It was just so out there. The premise of this book had me thinking, no way would this plot work...but it actually did. At least for me. Overall, if I hadn't gotten this for free, I would have never read this series, because at eight dollars (roughly $4 a book) it's a little costly to me.
