I received this story as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This was an interesting, and well written story. So many of the ideas that formed the world and it’s people seemed complex and well drawn, but I felt like I was dropped into the middle of the story without any sort of idea of what was going on. It felt like book 3 or 4 of a series. The author kept referring to people, and places like I should know who they are and how they related to each other and to the story as a whole. I felt lost, and confused, and that was a shame because I wanted to be more involved, and I wanted to know what was going on. I don’t mind a bit of mystery, but there was too much I didn’t know in this story, and it frustrated me. I don’t see any indication that this is part of a larger world, but if I am wrong about this (and I’d love to be wrong about this) I’d like to know.
