Wow!

Totally loved this book. It started with a great opening line, "I am within the darkness and it is in me". So subtle and poetic all at once.
This was the beginning of a chapter that was very trippy, like something Grant Morrison would write. The contrast between this psychedelic, supernatural imagery and the gritty realism of the crime scene in the following chapter is executed perfectly.
I will be sure to check our the first book in this series.

Menacing

You end the chapters really well, "the louder they scream, the more he enjoys it", is the best example. As a reader you feel compelled to turn the page and read about the grisly events you just know are about to transpire.
That being said, More care needs to be taken with grammar and punctuation, I also noticed a few typos, but that's something I'm guilty of too!
In conclusion, you have something great on your hands and I really want to see how this story ends.

Lots of potential here!

This is a very intriguing book, with lots of vivid descriptions. The narrator is by far the strongest aspect of this book and having read the first 3 chapters only, I want to read more to see you you advance it.
Slightly too much exposition, but then again, that is part and parcel of epic fantasy like this.
Tighten up the grammar and punctuation and you have a formidable work on your hands.

Great Premise. Great Writing

Cyberpunk has always interested me as a genre and this did not disappoint.
The descriptions and world building are on point.
Keep the story coming!

Hooked!

10 pages in and I can't put the book down. The opening scene with the little girl made me feel tense, before making my heart sink. The introduction to the main character is perfect, with a sleazy casino being the right setting for a noir.
This boom is a nice, easy read for anyone who likes their detective fiction.

Enjoyable start (1st 3 chapters)

This is a solid piece of work. Ever since Game of Thrones, I like reading books that switch points of view because it gives the reader a sense of scope and builds a fleshed out world.
The book has a humorous tone, I laughed at The Wizard of Oz reference. The descriptions are excellent, making it easy to picture the scene as well as empathise with the characters.
The build up had me excited to read more.

Great Start

Jbarron has started what promises to be a very timely work of fiction. With the use of simple sentence structure, she crafts a world that is falling prey to the rise of fascism. The way it is portrayed in this book shows how subtley it spreads. With respectable politicians like Nathaniel Burgin's, opportunistically allying with racists in order to further their aims.
It's not heavy handed either, the writing is amusing at times, lines like 'this knife would make you look like a badass' alleviates the sense of creeping dread in those first chapters.
The ending of the chapter hooked me and I would be very happy to read more of this, should Jbarron upload them.

Amazing poetry

The poems here are very simple, but with the use of an astounding vocabulary, they paint a vivid picture. Reading the divine, I felt as if I was lying under those trees myself.
I look forward to reading more of these!
