arc provided by the author through Netgalley
It took me forever to actually read this arc because I never could get into it...
Seems I was right to do so.
While the concept is intriguing the execution is very poor - in fact, this read like a very rough draft of a novel. There is a lot of telling and virtually no show. The characters were boring, underdeveloped, and tstl.
All in all, a disappointment.
