Knight Assassin - Rima Jean

Yeah, I don't know how I feel about this. Everything just happens so quickly that it feels juvenile--it has the pacing of something you would expect a seventh grader to write. There's an interesting story somewhere in here, but...I don't know. I don't understand what Zayn's power even does--makes her really strong? She has issues controlling feeling really strong? It's just not connected. And then the pacing throws everything off.


Maybe it'll slow down soon. Right now, I'm not sold.
