This book is a completely new genre for me. I found it unusual and a little hard to get into...but once I made the effort, it was a very interesting read. Iara had to make several decisions that I wasn't expecting. The story took some unexpected turns at unusual places until you go deeper into it and can understand more what was going on. I give this book a 3/5. It's a good read, and a good choice for starting a new genre if you've not read this one before.
