Note: I have not read any of the other books, not sure if I want to either.
Eh, this is a peak inside Conner's head. It kind of repeats and rambles a bit for me. Really drums the whole aspect of Marbury's Lens. I was almost tempted to go back and count how many times it is mentioned, or rather recount since I lost count after nearly 10. Almost as if Conner is obsessed--correction: is. Whatever happened to him in the first book changed him drastically. I can see the cracks of the lens of his own mind beginning to crack and tease his remaining sense of logic and sanity.
This probably would have gotten another star at least if I had read the first book.
It was a big mistake.
