Wow! What a trip! This book has it all; sex, intrigue, romance, murder, loyalty, you name it - it's in here.
Overall the writing was great, I think the style of the writing both helped and hurt the reader at times but there is not doubt that the book was great. Captivating, a roller-coaster ride and very fulfilling.
Definitely worth the read!
The story was fast paces as the character traveled the globe and while this offered interesting scene locations and constantly changing subcultures... It created constant change. The book was written with multiple POV and with the location, characters, and in some cases, flashback scenes it was more difficult that I'd have liked to follow the plot. There was an abundance of information given to the reader and at the rapid fire pace, it became a bit hard to digest.
The two "main characters" (loosely called that), Charlotte and Damon were written in a way that helped the background story make sense. Charlotte changed her name/life/living location to escape her father and it makes sense that she is secretive. Damon's family is shrouded in mystery and death and likewise one would think he'd keep to himself. But this leads to the reader also feeling shut out of their experiences and didn't allow me to connect to them as deeply as I would have wanted.
