I find that despite the fact that I feel like I really liked this book (I certainly read through the entire thing like I had a physical need to find out what happens next), I can't think of anything to say about it.
I take back what I said about the blocky Asian dialogue -- I had only read the first chapter and was a little concerned with the world building being based on a futuristic Asia (known in the book as the Eastern Commonwealth). But everything turned out pleasantly awesome... in a way.
I'm going to take some time to think about this book before I finally decide whether or not I want actually write a review about it. For the meantime, I really DID enjoy it a lot, though I can't exactly pinpoint what I liked about it and what didn't work for me. The book just kind of... happened and I was satisfied with it as a whole.
I will say, there were some awesome feels going on during some points of the story.
For certain, I AM going to read the next book and have put the rest of the series on my To Read list. I'm just going to pace myself since the third book won't be out until February and it seems there are talks of the ending of the second book being a suspenseful hanger. Not fond of those...
And lately I've been contemplating just waiting for the entire series of certain books to be completed before starting them. Cliff hangers are just going to be the death of me one of these days. Especially if I've grown attached to the series and its characters.
