I liked the story and characters, but the whole thing felt a little sloppy. There were continuity errors with a lot of contradictions. Like the author can't decide if something did or didn't happen. But the contradictions continued even with the characters thoughts and behavior. I felt like the author simply forgot what she had previously had her characters say or do. All of it should have been caught by a diligent editor because I was speed-reading and still noticed it. So it felt sloppy. I liked the plot and where the ending was headed, though.
