Couldn't get past first two pages, the writing was that amateurish. Independently published does not need to equate to poor writing skills. I'm more than willing to wait for a book to develop momentum before pulling me into the story, but trudging through seas of excessive adverbs, mental states reported instead of described, wooden dialog - well I could go on, but maybe you'll get the picture. I don't want to be more cruel than necessary. Anyhow, I just couldn't do it. There are too many actually good books waiting on my reading list.
