1.5 stars. I just don't know this book didn't hook me. I'm not sure if Dominguez is a new author, but the writing was a bit unpracticed. There was WAY too much detail about the monotonous. The story is quite long, but it doesn't really go anywhere for most of the book. There is certainly a story here, but it needs to be edited down and sped up. I wanted to know how the story finishes in the next two books, but not enough to wade through the excess.
