The Speed of Darkness by Sarah Baethge

There is a lot of plot to this story.  It twists and turns around a few main characters.  I found myself liking the main few even though I’m not sure they were very nice people.  They just seemed to need someone to be on their side.  The story itself was a little slow in places but seemed to move along enough that I didn’t get bored reading it.

I had a few issues with the writing style.  I find a lot of quotes and italics to be very distracting and not easy to read beyond.  I’m not sure if that is the way the author wrote it of if it was a formatting issue but it did contribute to the reading experience.  The thing that saved this for me was the story line.  I think it was well thought out and had some good twists and turns; enough to be an interesting book.

  1. Thanks for your review! I have heard these same complaints a few times, so currently I've taken the book offline to try and fix it. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the story-line, I actually turned on my computer right now to work on a prequel (I will try to avoid over-italicizing it :P).
