Still hovering between four and five stars here... it's almost
five, but for a couple of niggling little things that make me think I should perhaps spare five stars for the next book.
So, yes - the infodumps in the beginning. That was the bad bit. I could see why infodumps came in handy with this particular universe, but I'm just moderately allergic to them when they come in large quantities and all at once in the beginning.
Other than that, it was awesome - great fun, wildly imaginative, the romance happened a bit too fast but at least it was insta-hormones, not insta-love, and I can deal with insta-hormones, the male love interest actually (a) had something to do with the plot and (b) had character growth, and then, well, there was William. *loved William*
Very much looking forward to the next book in this series!
