Synopsis:

DNF’s don’t usually get a synopsis from me unless the DNF is ALL about me. This doesn’t fall into that small category.

My Thoughts:

This was pretty grim and bleak so I was wondering if I could handle 3 books of it, but the story was humming right along. I figured I could handle grim and bleak with a fast paced story.

Then along came a very low blow political statement and so I was done. Done with this book, done with this series and done with this writer. It isn’t worth my time or emotional energy to get upset about it but I won’t spend a second more on it than this.

Not quite the way I was hoping to start the month, but I guess you can’t win them all!
