    While I was a little confused during the introductory chapters, I soon became engrossed in this story and could barely put it down The main character is very easy to relate to, although at times he is a bit frustrating I found myself mentally shouting at him, warning him not to trust people and not to be so gullible Chase only gives a few moments of the villain s point of view, but they are extremely intriguing I was a bit turned off by the level of violence in the opening chapters, but that While I was a little confused during the introductory chapters, I soon became engrossed in this story and could barely put it down The main character is very easy to relate to, although at times he is a bit frustrating I found myself mentally shouting at him, warning him not to trust people and not to be so gullible Chase only gives a few moments of the villain s point of view, but they are extremely intriguing I was a bit turned off by the level of violence in the opening chapters, but that wasn t consistent throughout the book which I was appreciative of I m not a fan of overly gory violence Hinting at it is enough for my imagination Overall I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the follow up books I m interested to see how Chase concludes the story
