Similar high-quality level of writing as with Close Protection, and also similar refreshing...how do I put this, undermining of hackneyed tropes, something like that. Still, the beginning was...rushed or something. It was a bit too obvious. I thought at first that this might be an earlier work, but it actually comes after Close Protection, so *shrug.
I just woke up cuz apparently I fell asleep and I know I have more to say, but damned if I know what it is. It was all really well-planned in my head and stuff =_=
Eh. I think I summed it up. It was good, but a lot rougher around the edges than Close Protection was. Which isn't to say I didn't enjoy it, because I did.
