The Pearl Wars - Nick  James ****Holy crap I just wrote a long review and the whole thing vanished when I tried to re-write one word in it.****

I'm not interested in trying to say that all over again, so let me hit the basics up. The synopsis is misleading, the characters all lack oomph and development, the world building is minimal, and the whole thing was a drag to get through. I had to force myself to finish it. Don't waste your money on this one.
