What starts as a promising title and description for a novel quickly turns into a disappointment. There were too many characters running around. The point of view switched around too much. There were errors with punctuation, grammar, and awkward sentences. A lot of the mistakes contained in the story would have been avoided with research. More time editing would have prevented a lot of the issues with this novella.
