After reading The Prize in the Game, I had really high hopes for Walton's debut novel. Perhaps, too high. I made it to page 286/416, before finally deciding to put the book down. The writing was wordy, at times, & clunky. The plot jumped from one war to the next and was full of very flat characters. Part way through, I searched online for a list of characters but to no avail. I couldn't keep the characters & his/her relationships straight. Perhaps, if they had been more fully developed, it wouldn't have been so difficult. Nonetheless, I started making my own list. To give you an idea, in a matter of 1-2 chapters, I came across over 75 characters with many more to come. I really wanted to like this book, but it really didn't engage me. I'm very glad I read The Prize in the Game first, as I would've never picked it up after reading this book.
Disappointing. I was excited at the "Choose Your Own Adventure" premise. It was a lot of page flipping, and the story I finished on was not that satisfying. Interesting gimmick, but that was about it.
