This book took me totally by suprise! It's dark, gritty, and real in a way that is almost uncomfortable. The dialogue was hard to really get into, but once I had the hang of it, it was just...great. I don't know how to describe it. I came into the series when the first three were already released, and I was sad when I was done with the last one and even had to take a few days before I could read something else, because I was still wanting more of this world. I highly recommend this series if you are looking for something different and gritty.
