Blessed With a Curse - N.J. Nielsen
.J. Nielsen is a very good writer. The basis of this story, the world building and the characters were interesting, cleverly written and compelling to read. However, I believe it was the sheer number of introduced players that finally overwhelmed the basic storyline and weighed it down to the point where it became tedious and difficult to follow. Most of these characters were introduced in the last third of the novel. Couple that with what was admittedly an abrupt cliffhanger of an ending, and you can see how rating this book became a challenge.
