The Nightbirds, #1

Unwept really grabbed me to begin with. After about 100 pages I thought I was going to stop, but I ended up continuing on. It just became one messy story where nothing made sense. I understood that they were trying to give us bits and pieces of what was really going on. But the execution of it was boring and uninteresting. The characters however were very interesting to start. But during most of those first 100 pages they were all over the place. For me this was just one very odd read. I will not be checking out book two.

Go Into This One Knowing

This book has very slow plot development and almost no world building.
