So I just started reading it, seemed to get mentioned alot around here and this is where I go to find new book ideas. Anyways i'm only about 100 pages in and i'm not overly impressed. The premise seems interesting, the writing keeps me interested, it's certainly not a chore to read, but it still seems second rate. The characters don't seem believeable at all, a bunch of grownups acting like kids and kids acting somewhere between spoiled brats and adults. Maybe it's just because all the main characters are still kids, or it being his Bretts first book (I think). Right now I would probably put it somewhere in between Brandon Sanderson and Kate Elliot. No need to go spoiler heavy as i'm pretty early in the book, just looking for some other opinions and discussion.
