Too many subplots
So many different subplots - I don't think I quite figured it all out. The audiobook format probably contributed to that - you can't exactly reference back to previous pages. I also felt that for a 28-year old American main character, the narrator wasn't the best choice.

Before purchasing this book I did note that this audiobook appeared to be less well regarded per its reviews. I did enjoy Mosse's first book of the trilogy 'Labyrinth' enough to continue on, although I found the ending of that book disappointing -- but decided to give Mosse the benefit of the doubt as to the less than stellar reviews. The reviewers in this sense were correct. I found this story to be just average, with sections that were nearly unbearable. And again, the narrator Peters completely is wrong for this story - her range covering the characters just feel well short of the mark. The main characters are in their teens/twenties, and Peters sounds almost grandmotherly - not awful, just not right for the parts. A long audiobook which I slogged through. Not sure I plan to follow through to the final book of the trilogy, Citadel. I plan to see what others have written and do note that a different narrator performs this.
