This book started out strong, with plenty to hook me in right from the start. The characters were compelling, and the situations Nathan had to deal with resonated, his confusion apparent. But the ending fizzled for me. The pacing sped up, which initially created tension. But after the climactic event, the pacing got off track, feeling both too slow and too rushed at the same time. There were definitely things to like about this book, and I wouldn’t rule out re-reading it. But the story deserved a better ending than it got, at least in my opinion.
