The story was gripping at first and the creativity of what Mr. Waggoner displayed on the page by the world-building, weapons, and characters, both human and created, was a real fantastical treat.
The story seemed to fizzle out for me as some reads do when new weapons, worlds, and other things need to be introduced and explained. I have to say that it was overdone in this particular book and it did take away from the pacing of the story.
With the main character, Audra, being human and fighting with the big dogs, she always seemed to be unprepared; no weapon, last shot, or knocked out. Very inconvenient.
While I enjoyed the idea behind this read, I found it hard to connect with Audra.
I will say that there was enough substance for me to want to read the next in the series.
