I loved the cover right off. The writing is very clean and easy to follow with just the right amount of detail. It was easy to connect to Richard as he tells his story, giving the reader insight to his thoughts and way of processing information. He felt very real, fleshed out and layered. I enjoyed his development and interactions with Cassandra, who also felt fleshed out and strong. The plot was captivating and well paced most of the way through except for the last bit which seemed hurried or just too easily wrapped up.
