I really wanted to love this book. The ideas for the story were interesting and the secondary characters in this book really made me want to know more about them. However, I just couldn't connect to Serry or Quinton. I just couldn't get into their relationship and even the snark at times seemed cruel instead of funny or just razzing each other. Her acceptance of Quinton's condition was a bit fast and not quite believable. As was the way they fell in love and the way Serry overcame some very frightening experiences.
I give this book 2 stars. As I said, I just couldn't connect to the characters. I did, however, love the ideas the author came up with in the story. I found those to be intriguing.
I was given this book by the author and no compensation for my review was given.
