I was really looking forward to the start of Shupe's newest series, but unfortunately I was disappointed. I think the series definitely has promise, but I just felt like this story was too rushed. I really wish that Shupe had decided to make it full length novel so that we could enjoy the masterful storytelling that I have come to know and love.
Having said that, I am still really looking forward to book one in the series, Magnate, which comes out in April!
