I received this book as an ARC though NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I liked the idea of this story better than I ended up liking the story itself. I liked the relationship between Dion and his brother very much. Their bond felt real, and honest to me, and I appreciated that. I also liked the bond between Nolan, and his Grandfather. It was warm, and real, and I liked that. The relationship between Dion and Nolan felt a bit too forced to me, and Nolan's treatment of Dion was a bit too heavy handed, and almost patronizing for my tastes. I felt that Dion's changes came a bit out of nowhere, and I didn't buy into them fully. Dion's backstory was a bit much for me as well. A bit too action movie, and didn't feel real to me. The writing style added to that disconnected feeling. Not a bad story, but one that didn't really work for me either.
