To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Honestly, this seems like a first-time author's work, so I'll go easy. This story had the potential to be one of the best out here, but the author seem to forget his own storyline in favor of way too many fight scenes, building Kaedin up to be a better fighter than he is, noninformative dialogue between characters, and Kaedin's thoughts of extreme detail about the scenery. Many moments were missed to connect so many random things that took place in favor of useless dialogue between characters that don't appear more than twice. Why Eden's art? Why did she trust Kaedin and not Tim and Harris to get info from their boss' computer system? What war? Whose war? What is Kaedin? Whose going to explain all the deaths at his job? What job did Eden hire him for? Who broke into the building at the beginning? There was always some sort of action going on but didn't add to the story. I know authors like to believe a book is a series of random events and if they put a book cover on it and publish it, most people will automatically want to know what happens next. Well, we need to have a decent understanding of what's happening in the first book. And then there's the cliffhanger at the end. No need for that. The whole book is a cliffhanger, which there's an art to. The trick is to answer at least some questions or the reader has no reason to root for any of the characters or pick up the next read in the series only to be left with more questions.
