it was slow-paced, but the ending was a crunch :D

it was a slow novel, but the ending was somewhat not desirable. the plot was good so i would give it 3 out of 4 stars

The beginning of this book needs to be worked on. I give it 2 out 4. Thanks for the review.

Overall I thought this was a very good book, some strong characters added to a decent plot to give me something I could really get stuck into. I’ve no doubt in my mind at that I’d want to read the next installment.

I gave the book 3 out of 4 stars because I thought a lot of it was overdone and cliche, but I did like the climax. I particularly liked Karis Deen's character.

Political intrigue wasn't really my thing, but i found if quite interesting, but yes the slow pace was too much for me. I think i was expecting it to be like a full on race to the finish line, and it was more like turtle and the hare lol Overall not a bad story in fact.

I am not someone that enjoys anything political.I loved.The intrigue, the deals made under the table, sabotage, and even murder sounds like politics. I think that Martin did a good job setting the scene.There were a lot of suspense and mystery. I am not a fan of politics then i am not too interested by this book.Anyway i can recommend it to people.

I have completed 40% of the book and i would say that it is interesting but not too much. Up till now i will give out 2 out of 4 stars and that is honest

realistic to the situation. I did not like watching Godfredo deal with a father that is rather cruel but I do realize that was integral to the story. I would recommend it to people who like political and corruption stories as I can imagine people in real life going through

when is my knowledge going to expand

I am the only one in this topic who actually read the whole book. If you stop half way through I don't think you can have an honest opinion!
All the reviews rate it 4/4 ... which I agree

watching Godfredo deal with a father that is rather cruel but I do realize that was integral to the story. I would recommend it to people of all type. I will also recommend it for everyone so enjoy it

The build was medium paced and it was interesting and I liked it. Moreover, I liked the review too, it was curious

The book is slow paced and this is the only reason which made the reading bore but overall book review is great. It was the review which made me read the book
