I wanted to like this book more than I did. It sort of had all the right ingredients, and... Dunno. I didn't like Lex, never warmed to her, and the funny seemed awfully forced at times, like the author had to try really hard to make every sentence hilarious, and it just didn't really work for me.
funny, at times, but the ending... meh. Didn't work for me either. I'd realised who the bad guy was pretty quickly, so that wasn't exactly a shock, and going from funny to tragedy all of a sudden didn't seem either effortless or seemless, just clunky.
Props for the world-building and ideas though. And it's not like it was a bad book - not at all. I mean, I liked it well enough, I just didn't really
like it, never mind love
it. I might pick up the second book one day, even, but I'm in no big hurry.
