    Well, this has been an interesting read. At times it felt like I was going through a video game as opposed to an actual story. The fights scenes are nice but in my opinion you need to add more depth and complexity to your characters, some were completely useless and I see no reason as to why they were there. Like Cameron, his motive was sketchy and it turned out that he wasn't... read
