The story is well written, the characters three dimensional but I just could not love this book. Mac, the female lead is no wuss but I found her so boring. And if she said it once, she said it a hundred times that she is unskilled and illprepared to work for the corps. Often accidently falling into the action only for it to go no where. The male lead was equally blah. The whole premise failed to grip me and at no time did it feel as if anything was at stake or that there was any real danger. I just expected so much more from the author who wrote the excellent Raine Benares series.
