I have mixed feelings about this story. Some things I liked some things not so much. But it also didn’t WOW me in anyway. This story was slow at times and that was hard to keep me going.as far as reading goes but I did finish this. I also found this story a little boring most of the time. I did like the young dread gave us more history of the seekers and the dreads, this did add to the story as far as I am concerned.  I got confused in this story. I didn’t like the changing POV  so much. I did think that plot was good just somehow didn’t work that great for me in the story. Toward the end of the story things started coming together but by then my rating of this story had already went down a lot.
