Thank the gods today is payday... I was scraping the bottom of the freebies when I came upon this. I should have left it there, but the 300+ five star ratings to the 150 or so one/two/three star ratings... I figured I couldn't go wrong... LOL.
Anyway... don't waste your time. The grammar is atrocious. The plot and pacing... oh boy... no, just no *shakes head*. My poor Kindle. I was getting whiplash from constant flitting back 16 years, then ahead 16 years, then back again, and again, and again.
Then there is the repetition of the adjectives 'spiral' and 'swirling'... the latter coming up six times in just a couple of chapters.
The icing on the cake with this one, is that the author is another one of these serial shysters. I don't care if this is part of a series, a good author gives the reader a conclusion in each book, even if it is part of a series or, in this case, a trilogy.
Do not waste your time on this freebie, or money on the rest of the trilogy.
