Review from
The characters are phenomenal. Every character, whether main or supporting, is convincing and engaging. Everyone is uniquely complex in their own way. McDowell himself is probably the biggest puzzle of all. This main character cannot be held to any particular archetype. In the beginning of the book he seems to be insular, looking for recognition in all things he does. But after a while, McDowell’s personality unfolds, petal by petal, like a rose. Just like a rose, he becomes more beautiful and people are more drawn to him. There are dangerous parts of himself, like thorns, that will harm those that get close to him. What I like most about the character development is that one sees a part of themselves in every character. The dialogue also flows in a smooth, natural manner, making the story more relatable.
