Overall, this is an interesting story with unique characters However, there were times when I felt like the characters were sharing an inside joketalking about things it was assumed the reader would know even though they hadn t been told in the narrative Some of the major plot lines of the story also felt rushed, giving it a jumpy feel, especially at the end I think a lot of this was due to enthusiastic inexperience and am sure it will get better as she continues writing I look forward to Overall, this is an interesting story with unique characters However, there were times when I felt like the characters were sharing an inside joketalking about things it was assumed the reader would know even though they hadn t been told in the narrative Some of the major plot lines of the story also felt rushed, giving it a jumpy feel, especially at the end I think a lot of this was due to enthusiastic inexperience and am sure it will get better as she continues writing I look forward to the next installment
