It was all right. I mostly was just bored andor didn't care. The characters were bland. The story was sub-par. Writing was decent. Humor was barely there and definitely not as funny as some of VVV's other books.
Why was it such a big deal that no one know the real identity of the characters in the game? Just to improve the experience and make it more of a mystery to figure out? I didn't get it.
I thought that it was a neat way to get to where they needed to go for the purpose of the story with Arvin and his mother though.
I would suggest reading Heir Apparent over this one.
