- Will I remember any of the story or Characters after reading this?
- The Dynamic between Vincent and his son carries the whole novel. I won’t lie; I cringed at some of their interactions, but in a good way, I guess. (¯\_(ツ)_/¯) Most of the characters are strong in this novel. They each have a distinct presence. They never really fade into the background. Well, one does, but that’s what she’s supposed to do. This story felt like a weird mix of wish fulfillment and the MC suffering/earning his powerups.
- Was there anything that took away from my enjoyment of the story?
- There was one character that I didn’t like. It wasn’t that important until she became more central to the plot. It’s like the author was teasing me with how many chances this character got at character growth but refused. She was introduced as a bratty and untrusty person who was dealt a bad hand. Which is why I wanted her to improve. Yet, by the end of the novel, not that much had changed.
- Am I going to check out more from this series or author?
- I am eagerly awaiting book 2. I’m already a fan of the author as I have read some of his other works. He doesn’t have too many books in his backlog which is a shame.
