Characters: 6/10
Plot: 8/10
Writing: 5/10
The story itself was fun, fast-paced, and intriguing. I'd recommend it for the casual reader who enjoys action/adventure with a bit of mystery--but the characters are not super great (I wasn't really attached to any of them) and the writing was mediocre.
Normally, this doesn't leap out at me, but I don't read a ton of books written by men: the writing was sexist. Girls were stereotyped the whole time, starting with the "strawberry blonde" who remained unnamed but was a figure who's sole purpose was to a) cry and b) look hot playing a stupid sport. There were only two named females, and both of them were sexualized. It became painfully clear to me that this was written by a man when he wrote, "She crossed her arms under her breasts and stared at Brand..." (p. 35). It felt like reading a bit like reading a Mission Impossible movie.

A great book

I didn't like the main character at first, but as the story grew I liked him more.

WARNING! I thought this was just a prison escape book, but there is a couple things that can be tied with sci-fi/fantasy. This is why I give it four starts. It was unsuspected. As the book went on, I learned I did like the element/theme.

Highly Recommended!
