I didn't love the book. I had a hard time getting into the world. It kind of dragged from the beginning but by the time I got to Chapter 10, I felt like I should have a good feel for their world (The Wasteland) but it just got more and more confusing, and not in a mysterious way. The only reason I read the book in its entirety is because I enjoyed Jack's character enough that I wanted to see what happened to him. I didn't care so much about the other characters.

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the Wicked Lovely series, or Carnival of Souls. More than Graveminder, though.

The characters were interesting, and the setting/premise was novel, but the relatively short book didn't leave enough time to get really attached to the characters. I feel like Marr could have gotten a lot more mileage out of this concept (a longer book, a series, even).
